Recipe: Cacao Balls


“This is my favorite thing to make with raw cacao,” Cox says. “It’s a go-to, super simple snack using only dates as a sweetener, making them the perfect guilt-free snack.” That is, of course, if you don’t eat too many, which is easier said than done.

YIELD: Makes 12 servings | TOTAL TIME: 10 minutes


  • 1 cup medjool dates, pitted and soaked for 15 mins
  • 1 cup cashews (or nut of your choice) soaked for 2–3 hours
  • 1 Tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 Tbsp nut butter of your choice
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds


Throw everything into a food processor and mix until smooth. Roll into balls and keep in the fridge until ready to eat. Simple!
