CACAO & ALMOND BALLS with WILD ORANGE OIL

These are such a hit and have been for years. I use Wild Orange DoTerra Oil to give it that extra zing.

You will need a food processor for this – it’s near impossible in the blender.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Cup dates
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1/3 cup cacao (or even less, it can be a bit too chocolatey…and I used just plain Cocoa until I ran out)
  • 1/3 Cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut (shredded or desiccated)
  • 1 tablespoon Chia seeds
  • 3 drops of WILD ORANGE doTERRA Essential Oil (or peppermint or even Lavender!)
  • you can add anything else to this, I add Maca Powder sometimes to give it more of a boost.

Preparation

  • In a food processor combine everything except the dates until mixed
  • add dates
  • If too dry add some filtered water or coconut oil
  • Let mixture rest for 10 mins
  • Roll mixture into bite sized balls and roll in extra coconut
