Chocolate Date Balls

Like most girls, I like chocolate. Love is actually probably a more accurate description. I find when I’m having a craving that I need to fix quickly these protein packed little date balls do the trick. You can use the walnut, date, salt and vanilla as a base recipe and add in your favorite flavors such as peanut or almond butter for an extra punch of protein. These are perfect to eat before or after a workout or bring along on a hike. 


Yields: 10 balls

  • 1 cup of pitted dates (Medjool dates are my fav)
  • 1 cup of walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon coco powder
  • pinch of salt
  • splash of vanilla

Coco Date Balls  / @YFTHlifestyle #dateballs #chocolate


  1. Remove the pits from your dates
  2. Add dates, walnuts, coco powder, salt and vanilla to your food processor
  3. Grind mixture for about 30 seconds or until the dates are in small pieces
  4. Dump the contents from the food processor into a bowl so it’s easy to work with the dough
  5. Wet your hands and shape the dough into balls, bars or shapes
  6. They’re ready to eat right away or place in a covered container in the fridge. They should last about 5 days if you can make it that long without eating them 🙂
