Chocolate Date Bites

This recipe is gluten free, oil free, vegan

Dates are a nutrient dense food rich in B vitamins and Vitamin K. They’re also a great source of magnesium and zinc. They’re naturally sweet and help to improve digestive function and regulate cholesterol.


1 cup pitted dates

1/4 cup walnuts

1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds

1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds

3 – 6 tablespoons coconut flour

3 – 6 tablespoons cacao powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 – 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut


Soak dates for at least 3 hours. Drain off water and put in food processor along with cinnamon, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds. Pulse until mixed and dates begin to form a paste. Add 3 tablespoons of coconut flour and 3 tablespoons of cacao powder to start. You can add more as needed depending on the consistency of your date batter. Pulse on high until dates, coconut flour, and chocolate begin to mix together.

Transfer date mixture to a large mixing bowl and add shredded coconut. Kneed together with hands until all ingredients are evenly distributed and the date mixture can be formed into small bite-sized balls.
