Cacao Balls

Since quitting sugar in May I have really missed having a nice chunk of chocolate with a cup of coffee in the afternoons, so I decided to find an alternative snack, these cacao balls were the answer they are tasty and delicious bite size truffle balls, yummy….




100g Cashew Nuts

150g Medjool Dates

15g Raw Cacao Powder

15g Raw Cacao Nibs


Pop the cashews into a food processor until they are well ground

Remove stones from dates if not using pitted dates

Add dates to the cashews and process until the mixture is starting to clump

Add the cacao powder and nibs and pulse together

Line an airtight container with tin foil

Roll the mixture into small bite size balls and refrigerate


One is enough for me to satisfy my sweet cravings, but as Mr P also loves them I often make 1-2 batches a week. I will always make a batch if the ladies come to me for coffee, they are gone in minutes, a fantastic alternative to go with tea or coffee instead of cake.

Really hope you find these as scrumptious as we do, a healthy satisfying treat.
