  • 3 tbsp cacao nibs or cocoa powder
  • 1 1/3 cups dates pitted and chopped
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/3 cup goji berries
  • 1 tbsp spirulina powder
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp maca powder optional
  • 2 tbsp shredded coconut plus additional for rolling if desired
  • Salt


  1. Add cacao nibs to food processor and process until coarse powder is formed. Spoon out ~1 tbsp to roll balls in if desired and set aside.
  2. Add remaining ingredients to food processor and process until broken down. Mixture should stick together when pressed between fingers. If mixture is crumbling, add a couple more dates and process again.
  3. Spoon out ~2 tbsp of the mixture and press and roll into a ball with hands. Repeat until mixture is completely used. Roll some of the balls in extra cacao and/or coconut if desired.
  4. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before eating.
