Healthy Honey: Cocoa Balls
Cocoa balls are a great little 'refined - sugar free' snack or something to give you that chocolatey hit when you're craving it.
They last upto a week or two in the fridge and are so so quick and easy to make.
50g of Hazelnuts
50g of desiccated coconut
25g raw cocoa powder
1 tablespoon of coconut oil (melted)
3 tablespoons of Honey
50g of fresh dates
Put in the blender your dates, hazelnuts, cocoa powder dessicated coconut. Pour mixture into a mixing bowl, stir in honey and coconut oil.
Now, at this point I usually put on some Nitrile or latex gloves as things get messy / sticky!!
Using your hands, mould little balls out of the mixture and place in a tupperware to pop in the freezer.
Leave in the freezer for 30mins to an hour, then transfer them over to the fridge to happily snack on throughout your week!
