Almond and cacao balls

These balls are unbelievably easy to make, delicious, and healthy. On the top of that, they only contain a handful of ingredients and no added sugar, are dairy-free, and gluten-free. You can also play with the consistency by choosing bigger and more crunchy nuts or almost powdery flour. I sometimes also use almond meal leftovers after making home-made nut milk.


  • 250 g medjool dates
  • 150 g almonds
  • 3 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds (or poppy seeds)
  • 2 tbsp coconut flakes
  • more cacao, coconut or nuts to coat the balls, optional
  1. First either pulse blend the almonds (for chunkier texture) or make almond meal (or use store-bought almond meal/flour).
  2. Add medjool dates, cacao, coconut flakes, and chia seeds and blend everything together.
  3. Form little balls (you will make 10-15) and coat them in coconut flakes, cacao or nuts if you want.
  4. Serve immediately or store in the fridge for several days. They can be also freezed for several weeks.
