Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • Food processor


  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • ¼ cup raw cacao nibs
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • ¼ teaspoon Himalayan rock salt
  • 2 tablespoons spirulina powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla paste or extract
  • ½ cup mint fresh, chopped
  • ¼ cup raisins or sultanas
  • ½ cup Medjool dates
  • 1 teaspoon honey


  • Raw cacao powder
  • Desiccated coconut
  • Sesame seeds


  • Mix the first 8 ingredients together in a food processor.
  • Add the raisins, dates and honey and mix again till the mixture is nice and crumbly but sticky enough to roll into balls.
  • Roll into little balls, about a tablespoon per ball.
  • Now roll them around in a pile of cacao, desiccated coconut or sesame seeds to coat.


  • Use fresh, soft dates, and don’t be afraid to add an extra few in there if the balls seem a bit on the dry side.
  • If your dates are dry, soak them in boiling water for 5 minutes then drain ready for use
  • Nut butters are a wholesome addition and can be used to replace some of the dates, helpful if you want to reduce the overall sugar content
  • Try rolling them in a mix of different toppings purely for aesthetics – I’ve used desiccated coconut, sesame seeds and raw cacao powder here. Freeze dried fruit powders are also fun
  • If you have food-safe essential oils, a couple of drops of peppermint essential oil in place of the fresh mint is just delicious (purchase doTERRA essential oils here)
  • Store them in an airtight container to keep them fresh
