  • 1 1/4 Cup Soft Dates - pitted
  • 1/2 Cup Organic Pumpkin Seeds
  • 1/2 Cup Sunflower Seeds
  • 2 Tsp Organic Chia Seeds
  • 1/4 Cup Organic Cacao Nibs
  • 1/4 Cup Organic Raw Cacao
  • 2 TBS Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil - melted
  • 3 Tsp Activated Charcoal - I used capsules
  • 1 TBS water
  • Pinch of Celtic Sea Salt


  1. Make sure your dates are pitted, and place them into a high speed food processor. Blend for a few seconds.

  2. Add the remaining ingredients (except the water) and blend until all begin to combine.

  3. Add the water to helps get everything moving and stuck together. Scrape down the sides if need be, but a big ball should form.

  4. Spoon out a heaped tablespoon of mixture at a time and use your hands to FIRSTLY squeeze the ingredients together. This will help them bind a bit before rolling gently into balls. 

  5. Place into the freezer overnight to set. Keep in an airtight container for up to 1 week (although I doubt they'd last that long ;-) ) 

Recipe Notes

As always, use Organic wherever possible. Try source your ingredients from local companies.
