These are the hit of every party I bring them too. I’m “addicted” to them. I eat one every day. They satisfy my “sweet tooth” and I feel good I’m eating something healthy. Raw cacao is filled with anti-oxidants.
RAW CACAO BALLS (not cocoa or chocolate — RAW CACAO)
2 cups of raw walnuts
2 cups pitted dates
1/2 cup of raw cacao powder
In a food processor, process the walnuts until fine. Add the pitted dates (you can cut them in half to make it easy on the food processor if you want). When you get a mushy mess and the dates are processed, put it the cacao powder a 1/4 cup at a time. Taste and see if you want more cacao. Roll them into balls and put a walnut in the center. Feel free to roll raw coconut on the outside. You can also roll pine nuts on the outside, but you have to squeeze the balls hard and push the pine nuts inside. If you want to use goji berries, chop them a bit in a coffee grinder. You can roll them on top too.
