  • 12 dried Medjool dates
  • ½ cup almonds
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • 6 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 4 tablespoons carob powder
  • 1 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon
  • 2-3 tablespoons water
  • Raw cacao, ground walnuts, almonds or carob for dusting


  1. Remove the pits from dates and soak them in hot water for several minutes. When the dates are softened, drain them and place in food processor. Save the water.
  2. Add the other ingredients - almonds, walnuts, cacao powder, carob and cinnamon to a food processor and blend until mixture turns into paste or dough-like consistency. Add 2-3 tablespoons of water in which you have soaked the dates if the mixture is too dry.

  3. With the small spoon scoop the mixture and roll into balls. Roll the balls into raw cacao powder. Place them on the baking sheet.

  4. Store chocolate cinnamon balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator until serving.

Recipe Notes

As a measure I used UScup (240ml). You can add honey or syrup in the mixture, to taste and if needed. Keep the energy bites frozen up to 3 months in the freezer.
