Vegan Christmas Chocolate Balls

and other superfood superhealthy seasonal snacks


These are amazing!!! And can be enjoyed all year round :)


Ingredients :

10 Medjool Dates : pitted, soaked in boiling spring water for 10 minutes

1 cup almond meal

1/2 cup desiccated coconut

1/2 cup raw cacao powder

50ml rum OR a few drops of sweet orange essential oil (for the whole family)

1 tablespoon spring water

2 tablespoons coconut oil (will be liquid at body temperature)

Desiccated coconut for rolling the balls.



Blend all ingredients together!

Refridgerate for 5 minutes until firm to make rolling in coconut easier.

Roll in desiccated coconut and refridgerate in an airtight container until required.

Stores for around a week in the fridge if they last that long :)

* Variations can include cranberries, raspberries or cacao nibs... or anything you love with chocolate!



This is a superfood superhealthy snack that can be enjoyed anytime (just not all at once!)

Ingredients :

*1/4 cup maple syrup (optional - I find this sweet enough without maple syrup)

1/2 cup cashew or macadamia or almond butter

1/2 cup coconut oil (melt over very low heat)

1/2 cup raw cacao powder

Pinch Celtic Sea Salt

1 tsp Vanilla extract or scrape vanilla seeds from a vanilla bean



Mix all ingredients slowly over a very low heat in a small saucepan for 2 minutes. Once assimilated, pour into a silicon ice cube tray and refridgerate (this allows you to pop out the fudge pieces easily). Keep refridgerated. Enjoy!

*If you omit maple syrup, this recipe also works well with dried fruit such as cherries, goldenberries or cranberries (Tip : use non sulfur dried fruit).
