Hazelnut Cacao Balls

These are a classic. A delicious and moorish tasting bliss ball.

Easy to make with simple ingredients to form a firm and decadent ball.

These are perfect to keep in the fridge for a mid-morning snack with a cuppa, to grab as a pre-workout snack in the afternoon or to keep in the car for those peckish moments.

*I made this latest batch with raw hazelnuts, although to make them a little richer and to allow the natural oils come out, I would advise roasting them and letting some of the skins roll off naturally.  This depends on how much time you have and what flavour you’re going for.

You’ll need:

~ 1 large cup raw hazelnuts

~ 6 regular dates (soaked in hot water for about 20mins)

~ 2 tbsp raw cacao powder

~ 1 tbsp coconut oil (melted)

~ 2 tsp sesame seeds

~ Dash of vanilla extract

~ 1/2 tsp himalayan pink salt

How to:

~ Throw hazelnuts and dates into a food processor with a dash of hot water until a rough paste is formed. Scrape the edges, then add all remaining ingredients.

~ Blend this mixture until a smooth sticky mixture is formed.

~ Take spoonfuls at a time and roll into small bite sized balls.

~ Keep in the fridge and enjoy at any time at all.

Enjoy! X
