Raw Chocolate Bites

anti cancer diet

I love Chocolate and I love sharing my recipes and creations! If I am going to indulge in chocolate, it has to be nourishing and I must be able to savor every bite.  These Raw Chocolate Bites do just that and are the perfect afternoon treat with tea or as a healthy dessert. They are so simple and can be made in less than 30 minutes. You simply have to prepare ahead by soaking your almonds over night.  Bon Appetit!

Soak 2 cups of organic almonds in clean water

Let sit over night.

The next day rinse and dry on a clean towel.

Soak 2 cups of organic pitted dates in  bowl of clean water until soft.

Save the water from the dates.

In a food processor, pulse the almonds and the dates until they are well blended.

Add 1/2 cup to 1 cup of raw organic cocoa powder, depending on your taste.

Add 1 tsp of vanilla

Pulse  again and slowly add some of the date water until the consistency of the mixture is fairly smooth .

You should be able to roll a ball between your hands and it should stick.

Pour  unsweetened organic coconut tiny flakes into a bowl.

Roll the dough into a small ball between your hands and then roll in the coconut.

Place the balls in the refrigerator for several hours so they can harden a bit. Enjoy!!
