Chocolate Nuts and Date Treats

chocolate nut and date treats



  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup pitted dates (softened in water if hard)
  • 3 tbsp. cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg powder
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup (adjust amount to desired sweetness)
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes.


  • Put all dry ingredients (except coconut flakes) in a food processor and grind till coarsely chopped
    (to desired coarseness). I like them a little finely ground.
  • Add maple syrup and give it one more whisk.
  • Mould the mixture into small balls or give them desired fun shapes.
  • Coat with dry coconut flakes.
  • Freeze them for an hour to make them a little hard.

Serve frozen or refrigerated
