Method

  • Place the almonds in a food processor and blend until a fine crumb forms.
  • Add the chia seeds, dates, cacao nibs and raw cacao and process again.
  • Add the warm water and blend once more. The mixture should now form a sticky ball in the food processor.
  • Use your hands to mould in to 10 balls (slightly smaller than a table tennis ball).
  • On a plate, place one teaspoon of cold water, then gently roll each ball in the water to dampen the outside then roll in the crushed cacao nibs. 
  • Store in a container in the fridge.

  • 100g Almonds
