These are my favourite snacks to make when I need something chocolatey and sweet. I found these a few years ago at Melissa Ambrosini's blog and have altered it a bit to suit my style.
1 cup of dates
1/4 c craisins or goji berries (optional)
1/3 c coconut oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup of almonds
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 c desiccated coconut
pinch of himalayan salt (if you have it)
Put the dates and craisins (if using) into two separate bowls. Cover them in boiling water for 15 minutes to allow them to soak.
Drain the dates and toss them into a food processor along with the melted coconut oil and vanilla extract. Process until it becomes a thick paste.
Remove the date mixture from the processor and place in a bowl. Clean out the food processor and then add the almonds and chia seeds. Blitz until the almonds are fine crumbs. Add the cocoa powder, desiccated coconut and a pinch of himalayan salt and pulse to combine.
Add the date mixture back to the processor and blitz them all together until it begins to form balls.
Fold through the drained craisins or goji berries, roll into balls and roll through desiccated coconut.
Keep these in the fridge - the texture's much nicer than when they're at room temperature!
