Vegan Orange Chocolate Bites
Using only 5 ingredients this delicious, healthy recipe makes a great snack for the whole family.
1.25 cups | 178 grams raw cashews
10 | 200 grams Medjool dates, pitted
2 tablespoons | 18 grams rasins
1/4 cup (30 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder + more for rolling
4 drops of doterra wild orange essential oil or zest of an orange
1. Using a Nutribullet or a high powered blender or food processor pulse the cashews until they turn into small and crumbly bits. Make sure to stop blending before you end up with nut butter.
2. Add the rest of your ingredients to the blender or food processor and pulse until you end up with a large, sticky chocolate ball.
3. Wrap the mixture in cling film (it will be very sticky at this point) and place it in the freezer for about 20 minutes to let the mixture harden.
4. After 20 minutes, remove the chocolate from the freezer and roll into little bite sized balls. Roll the balls into a small amount of cocoa powder to coat the outside to make it less sticky. Freeze or refrigerate for freshness.
Note – if the balls are too sticky try wetting your hands with a bit of water before rolling, store in a container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
