All you need is your blender of choice and 20 minutes. It really is that simple.
Made from 100% wholefoods, this treat is bursting with health benefits that will keep you feeling satisfied whilst nourishing your cells.
These bites are naturally sweetened with medjool dates, which means no added processed sugars or unnatural flavours.
Medjool dates, also known as the healthiest natural sweetener are packed full of fibre, vitamins and minerals, boasting remarkable health benefits.
The bites are also made using four of our favourite health-promoting spices; ginger, cinamon, clove and nutmeg.
You will also see almonds in the ingredients list. Almonds are a high source of dietary fibre, antioxidants and monounsaturated fatty acids (the healthy kind of fat). Almonds are also said to contain good amounts of Vitamin E and Riboflavin. Trace minerals such as Magnesium, Manganese and Calcium are also present.
If you are after a tasty chocolate treat that is not reliant on dairy, sugar or oil for its flavour, then this is the treat for you!

You can have this mixture left a little chucky if you like that nutty crunch!
2. Combine dates, apricots, raisins and orange zest in blender on high.
This should form a paste like consistency.
Add some orange juice if more liquid is needed.
3. Add blended almonds, coconut, cacao, allspice, ginger and sea salt.
Blend on Medium until it forms a dough like consistency.
4. Empty mixture out of blender and start forming small bite sized balls.
