Chocolate & Date Balls

I made these gorgeous chocolate balls yesterday when I remembered I have some quinoa flour and thought to try it in energy bites. So I just mixed the other ingredients and voilà… Great dessert next to your cup of tea.


Makes 6 balls

  • 1/4 cup quinoa flour
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp melted cacao butter
  • 6 pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup crushed almonds

For the sauce:

  • 1/2 tbsp melted cacao butter
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder


  • Mix all ingredients in a food processor and make into balls.
  • Stir the chocolate sauce until all the powder is dissolved and drizzle on top of the balls and garnish with more crushed almonds. Fridge for at least half an hour.


  • Make sure the dates you use are soft and sweet.
  • You can use other flours like almond flour or any other nut flour or half nut flour and half oat flour. Create your own recipe with what you got 😏

Making this recipe? I would love to see it!
