  • 1 cup packed Medjool dates, pitted (about 14-16 dates)
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup smooth almond butter
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • pinch of salt


  • Place pitted dates in warm water for 10 minutes. Drain completely. If you need to, squeeze the dates to remove as much liquid as possible.
  • Place dates in the food processor and pulse a few times.
  • Add the unsweetened cocoa powder, almond butter, dried cherries, vanilla extract, and chocolate chips. Pulse until all of the ingredients are blended together and forms a thick batter. If the batters crumbly and not coming together then add in 1-2 tablespoons of water.
  • Place the batter into a bowl, cover, and refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
  • Roll batter into 20 balls and then refrigerate overnight.
  • Enjoy!
