Cacao Power Balls

Stephanie Malouf Nutrition

Makes: Approx 15 Balls

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups dates, pitted 
  • 2 cups walnuts 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut for rolling
  • 1 tsp water to bind the mixture if needed

 

method:

Add all the ingredients (except the water) into the food processor and mix until it becomes moist (from the oil being released) and forms a dough. This can take some time.

  1. Add some water to moisten and help bind the mixture if needed

  2. Roll into small balls and then roll into the desiccated coconut until covered

  3. Store in the fridge

 TIP: Store your walnuts (and any other nuts and seeds) sealed in the fridge away from oxygen and heat so that they don’t become rancid. Rancid fats create free radicals in our bodies, which in high amounts are a carcinogenic, damage DNA, cause disease and accelerate ageing. 

 

WHY ARE THESE HEALTHY?

Ever wondered why a walnut looks like a brain? That’s because they are brain food, helping it to function optimally and prevent cognitive degeneration and depression.

 Cacao is very high in flavonoids, an antioxidant, which destroy free radicals in your body which accelerate ageing and cause diseases such as cancer.

These treats are a great source of energy and keep you full due to the protein and fat content in the nuts, making a perfect afternoon pick me up!
