Paleo Almond Cocoa Mocha Balls

Chocolate. Coffee. Nuts. What's not to like? We love this quick and easy recipe from Physical Kitchness. A healthy snack that you can whip up in minutes that satisfies many cravings you may have.


1 cup raw almonds
3 cups strongly brewed coffee, cooled    
10 medjool dates 
2 tablespoons cocoa powder

1-2 teaspoons instant coffee


1. Pour the cooled coffee into a medium bowl, then add raw almonds. Let the almonds soak for at least two hours.
2. Drain the almonds and pour them into a food processor. Add the dates, cocoa powder and instant coffee.
3.Pulse until well combined.
4. Roll into balls roughly 2-3" in diametre.
5. Store at room temperature or in refrigerator.

Helpful Hints

If your food processor or blender isn't the most powerful I recommend pulsating the almonds separately first, then add this to the entire mixture. You may have to pause to stir ingredients around as the dates being sticky can clog up the bottom interfering with the blending process.

Happy and healthy baking!
