  • 10 medjool dates (about 1-1/4 cups)
  • 2 tsp. 100% cacao (unsweetened)
  • 2 Tbsp. chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp shredded coconut, unsweetened
  1. Soak dates in water for a couple minutes if at all dry.
  2. In a food processor or blender, blend dates and cacao until smooth and a paste-like consistency is formed. You may have to add a little water and pulse to get the right consistency.
  3. Push down all of the paste from the sides and transfer into a small bowl. Using a spoon, stir in chocolate chips and chia seeds.
  4. Measure out one, flat tablespoon and roll into a ball. Make 9 balls, place them on a plate.
  5. On a separate plate, spread the coconut sparsely. Roll each ball lightly in a few pieces of shredded coconut and place back on the plate without the coconut. Repeat with the remaining 8 balls.
  6. Place in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes to chill.
  7. Enjoy!
