  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 20 large medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/3 cup cacao or cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Optional: 1/2 cup shredded coconut to decorate


  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor. Process until a sticky dough forms.
  2. Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to scoop the dough into 18 rounds.
  3. Roll the dough into balls, using clean hands.
  4. Optional: roll each ball in shredded coconut or the topping of your choice to decorate and add extra flavor and nutrients.


  • Kaylie recommends adding 1-2 teaspoons of water if the final mixture is too dry to roll into balls.
  • Store in the refrigerator for a firmer, chewier texture.
