In Sweden, we have a traditional treat called “Chokladbollar” that almost everyone has made at least once during their childhood. They are as tasty as they are unhealthy, with the main ingredients being sugar and butter. But there’s no need to despair, we have tweaked the recipe and turned this traditional Swedish treat into a sugar-free, healthy snack that actually tastes better than the original!
- 200-250 ml nut Flour (we like almond or cashew!)
- 14 pitted Dates
- 2.5 tbs of Coconut Oil
- 2.5 tbs of Raw Cacao
- 1 teaspoon of Coffee
- Coconut Flakes
Optional: A small amount of oat for a bit more of a crunchy texture. The oat can be added to the bowl after step 2.
This recipe can produce up to 15 small raw chocolate bites.
How to make Swedish Raw Chocolate Balls
- Add all ingredients to a food mixer and mix.
- Take the chocolate mixture out from your mixer and put it into a bowl.
- Start rolling small chocolate balls. You can roll them into whatever size you prefer but we recommend rolling them into a smaller ‘chocolate truffle’ size (it’s a lovely size to enjoy coupled with a cup of tea or coffee).
- Once you have all the mixture rolled up into delicious little balls, put out a plate with coconut flakes.
- Roll the balls in the coconut flakes until the outside of the ball is as covered as you prefer.
- Et Voilà! You have made your first Swedish raw chocolate balls.
You can keep your finished chocolate balls out of the fridge, which will keep them a bit soft and chocolatey or if you prefer a harder consistency, put them in the fridge. Either way, they are a great treat to serve as a small dessert after dinner, to munch on in front of a movie, or whenever you’re in desperate need of something sweet and sugar free.
We hope you enjoy these as much as we do (they are truly amazing!) and let us know if you try them out. We’d love to hear your thoughts on it!
