  • 1 cup packed pitted Medjool dates
  • 1 cup roasted cashews (raw is fine too!)
  • 1/3 cup fine unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cacao nibs
  • For rolling:
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut


  1. Add all ingredients except the cacao nibs to a food processor and pulse until ingredients are well combined and sticky. Add in cacao nibs and process a few more times. Roll into 14 balls. Next roll in shredded coconut if desired and place in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. Feel free to freeze these for up to 3 months! They’re actually delicious straight out of the freezer and that’s how I prefer them.

Recipe Notes

For an extra delicious option: feel free to roll them in toasted coconut.
