Raw Cacao-Coconut Bites {grain-free, sugar-free}

Time for a super easy, sweet treat.  

Perfect for these weekdays. Hey, even more perfect for hump day! 


These feel decadent, thanks to the cacao powder and chewy dates. And the chocolate & coconut combo... I mean, can you go wrong? 

This week, I served the bites on a small cutting board at the table for a healthy, sweet treat to end the meal. I just give these a whirl in a food processor before I start making dinner, then pop them in the freezer for a few minutes to harden. As soon as dinner is ready - trust me - these bites will be ready.  

Plus, now you have healthy treat for tomorrow, too.


Raw Cacao-Coconut Bites {grain-free}

(Makes about 12-14 bites)

  • 1/2 cup raw walnuts
  • 1/2 cup raw pecans
  • 8 large Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 Tablespoon raw cacao powder (unsweetened cocoa powder will work)
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut


  1. In a food processor, blend the dates with the nuts until crumbly, but not yet a paste. If the dates are hard, soften them for 10 minutes in hot water, then drain, take out the pit and chop.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the nut mixture in the food processor. Process until crumbly. It should hold together when you pinch it. 
  3. Roll dough into tablespoon-sized balls and freeze for a few minutes to quickly harden. You can also store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. 
  4. Keep stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. 

These are a healthy snack that taste devine. :)
