Raw cacao date balls

I absolutely love these raw cacao date balls - they're super easy to make, they're healthy and they taste amazing (like brownie batter, but without the guilty conscience). You can basically add whatever you like - I want to add almonds next time I make it and maybe some goji berries - so just experiment with the things you like and have available. The recipe for these are:

1 cup pitted dates
1 tbsp. raw cacao powder
2 tbsp. shredded coconut
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tbsp. water
1 tbsp. coconut oil

  1. Put all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender (preferably with an S blade) and blend
  2. Scoop out the mixture with a tablespoon and use your hands to roll them into balls
  3. Roll them in shredded coconut
  4. Put them in the fridge for a couple of hours to set before eating
  5. Enjoy!
