Coconut, Cashew, Chocolate Balls

These decadent balls should come with a warning as your whole family is bound to love them.  This kid friendly recipe is a great dessert that can be made quickly (as long as your pre-soak the cashews) and as a bonus it contains some great antioxidants and will satisfy your chocolate craving.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of raw cashews, soaked in water for at least 1 hr (can soak up to 6 hours if needed)
  • 5 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/3 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup dried goji berries
  • For extra protein kick:  add in up to 2 scoops of vanilla/chocolate protein (note that you may need to add in a little water if the mixture is too dry)

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients except the goji berries in a blender or food processor.  Blend until creamy/doughy
  2. Add goji berries and blend for another 10 seconds or so
  3. Roll mixture into balls (about the size of a cotton ball)—should make about 10.
  4. Keep refrigerated or frozen—my preference is frozen as it tastes like frozen brownie mix!
