Super easy and yummy. Your little cook will love helping you make them as much as they love eating them!


  • 1 cup of dates (100g)
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
  • Rind of one medium orange (finely grated)
  • Coconut oil (or some other kind of oil) for your hands


  • Food processor




1 Soften the dates in boiling water for a few mins if they are a little hard
2 Pop the dates, cacao powder and orange zest in a food processor and blitz for 1-2 mins
3 If the mixture is too stiff add a few drops of juice from the orange and blitz again
4 Now for little cooks to have some fun! sprinkle some cacao powder on a plate, rub coconut oil into your little cook's hands and start rolling!
5 Take about a heaped teaspoon amount and roll into a ball - then roll in the cacao powder on the plate and repeat until all of the mixture has been used up
6 Store in a fridge for up to 5 days, though we can guarantee they will not last that long!!
