Raw chocolate balls from dates 

   Since I have been leaving in the Middle East I ate lots of dates from Emirates and Saudi Arabia. 
   This dates balls are fitting just perfect in your paleo diet, and are a healthy variety of quick dessert or it can be a fun activity with your children.

400 gr dates
3 tablespoon almond powder or coconut flour
2 teaspoon cacao powder
cacao and coconut flakes to cover the balls

1. Place dates in a bowl and pour on it hot water, let it to stand for 10 minutes, than take out the seed.

2. Place the dates in food processor or blender, add the cacao powder and almond powder, pulse it until a chunky mixture forms.

3. Using a teaspoon, form rounded balls and roll in coconut and cacao powder to completely coat. Place the balls in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving them.



  1. That is a simple and easy recipe.. Loved it... I served this the other day for tea with Besan Fries which is also a simple and easy recipe. try it! :)
