Nutty Chocolate Date Balls

Even though I love a good store-bought snack once in a while, I mostly make my own snacks at home. It can be so much healthier and very easy! These chocolate date balls are the perfect bite-sized energy booster, for parents and the kids alike! My 5 year old loves to get into the fridge and eat a chocolate date ball for snack, and I feel good about the healthy ingredients inside.

I use my Thermomix® to make these chocolate date balls, because it is incredibly simple. Just add all of the ingredients into the mixing bowl, blend on high speed to chop everything fine and mix together, then roll and chill in the fridge! As a Thermomix® USA consultant, I am always looking for new recipes to make in my Thermomix® to share with my customers. This chocolate date ball recipe is a winner! It is vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free.

See how these nutty chocolate date balls are made in my video on You Tube:

      Hi Janie! Sorry for the late reply. I did not use nut butter, only raw nuts. I had made a nut butter before this recipe and left a little bit in my mixing bowl, but probably not enough to affect the recipe. If you like, you can add maybe 1 tbsp of almond butter or peanut butter to help with the texture… 🙂
