raw chocolate date bites

my daughter katerina made these this afternoon

raw chocolate date bites
adapted from here
makes 32


2 cups finely chopped medjool dates
2 cups finely chopped walnuts
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
4 tablespoons (tbs) organic cocoa powder
2 tbs organic coconut butter
extra shredded coconut


~ place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix together until the mixture forms a ball
~ roll walnut sized pieces in extra coconut

they went really well with a cup of tea after a few hours of work in the garden


  1. They do look yummy. The problem with things like that is that you think "they are only small, I could eat a handful..." and then after that handful you think it again...and a few moments later another handful goes down and pretty soon your jar/bowl is empty and you have to make another batch ;)

    1. you're right will power is getting a work out..

  2. it's been ages since I made balls like these, which is silly as they are healthy and tasty and I have all the ingredients. (love the little flowered jug too :-)

  3. Just wrote dates on my shopping list. I have a feeling that my daughter will like them too....
