Ingredients you need to make raw date balls


  • Medjool appointments – It usually comes with the pit. You need to slice the pit (you can find a tutorial on this in the video below this post). Other date types may not work in this recipe because they have not been tested.
  • Cocoa powder – for a small chocolate taste
  • Maple syrup – As a moist sweetener that helps hold date balls together
  • Coconut flour – Essential basis for great firm texture and smooth consistency. I do not recommend replacing it with other flours – more.

Wait until your appointments are sticky

Data tends to dry out as it ages. Dipping dates in hot water before the procedure can revive ancient dates and often make them sticky, which is necessary for the date balls to stick together.

While we put the wetted dates in the food processor, we shake the excess water lightly.

Coconut flour is a magical ingredient

When these four ingredients are combined, something magical happens and coconut flour is definitely a "secret sauce". I did that with almond flour and they were incredibly soft (even if they did increase almond flour) and that too oatmeal (also much softer).

Don't skip the coconut flour with difficult, slightly rolling palm balls (with a delicious coconut taste)!

Let cool before rolling

It helps to put the food processor in the fridge for 10 minutes before rolling the date balls. This cools all materials down a bit and makes rolling easier.

  • TIP – Use 1 tablespoon of cookie spoon for great and even energy bites

These balls hold the top fresh fridge, but are okay in a lunch box for several hours.


Here are some ideas (keep in mind that these are just suggestions and not all will be tested)
