Chocolate Cashew Maca Balls

Okay by now I'm sure you probably guessed how much I love desert balls. I usually whip up a batch a few times a month and only when I'm feeling super inspired and have that burst of energy after dinner. I had homemade cashew butter, dates and chocolate chips and decided to marry the three with some added maca powder (love this adaptogenic herb) and hemp. Another great snack option for anytime of day! Go make 'em! 


What You Need: 


  • 6 medjool dates 
  • 1 tsp maca powder 
  • handful of chocolate chips
  • 2 tbs cacao powder 
  • pinch of pink Himalayan salt
  • 1 - 2 tbs hemp hearts 

What You Do: 


  1. Combine pitted dates in food processor and pulse until somewhat combined 
  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix on low until consistency is ready to be formed into balls
  3. Roll into balls and enjoy! 

Chocolate Almond Maca Balls

Chocolate Maca Balls

Ooeey - gooeyness! I bet you can't eat just 1?? Who can resist a healthy treat that's full of chocolate - but the good chocolate! I used unprocessed raw cacao powder that is rich in magnesium and full of antioxidants. In addition to the dates, Lacuma powder is used as a natural sweetener and it's full of fibre. Lacuma powder is a fruit found in South America. It has a kind of maply syrupy taste. I really like using it in my baking. 


What You Need: 


  • 7 soaked Medjool dates
  • 2 tbs cacao powder 
  • 2 tbs Lacuma powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbs melted coconut oil
  • 2 tbs almond flour
  • 2 tbs almond butter 
  • pinch of pink Himalayan salt 
  • 1 tsp maca
  • 1 tbs collagen powder 

What You Do:


  1. Pulse dates in a food processor a few times  
  2. Slowly add in remaining ingredients and pulse until all combined
  3. Mixture may appear too creamy to roll into balls but with a little water on your hands they cane formed into balls

Set in fridge to harden and enjoy 1 as a snack. This batch makes approximately 6 medium sized balls. Easy, healthy, and delcious!
