  • 15 large medjool dates
  • 3 Tablespoons cocoa powder* plus more for rolling
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1/4 cup hot water


  • Add dates to a food processor and blend until chopped. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until ingredients form a paste.
  • Dump the dough onto a piece of waxed paper and form a 6 x 6-inch square. Allow to rest a minute.
  • Using a knife, cut into 16 equal portions. You can either leave them square-shaped or roll into a ball, as I did. (Shown in the pictures) You may want to lightly dust with extra cocoa powder so they won't be so sticky and will be easier to roll into a ball.


  • *You can substitute chocolate protein powder for some of the cocoa in these bites for more protein.
  • Exchange one tablespoon of the cocoa for one tablespoon chocolate protein powder.
  • tore in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
