Coconut Chocolate Balls


Can you believe it’s already the 4th of July!!   If you have a bbq to attend or hosting one this holiday weekend, here is a great treat you can provide!

The base of the balls are dates.  Did you know: Dates are part of the fruit family and come from my favorite plant, the palm tree.  They contain a wide variety of essential vitamins and minerals such as, calcium, iron, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, magnesium and zinc.  Dates also provide a great source of energy, sugar and fiber.  Dates contain zero saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol making them a blood pressure and heart healthy treat.   These balls contain 5 ingredients and can whipped together in 10 minutes or less.  Just be careful, they are highly addictive!🙂

This is really easy to make, although, is a bit messy – warning! – but the end result is well worth the mess.  You can enjoy this on a piece of Ezekiel bread for breakfast or my Paleo rolls (recipe found here:  You can even get creative and make a crepe out of egg whites and fold it with strawberries and a scoop of the nutella!  The options are endless!
