The widely popular Swedish chocolate ball, “Chokladboll”, is an essential part of most fika routines. Of course, finding the chocolate ball here in the United States might be difficult. So why not just make your own? And why not with a healthy twist while you’re at it?
These are a great dessert for those days where you accidently ate 6 tacos, extra cheese, instead of the usual 3.
12 big dates, or 5 oz of Ziyad All Natural Baking Dates
1 1/5 cup of shredded coconut flakes
3 tsp of almond flour
6tsp of cacao
1 tsp of coconut oil
1/2 a cup of coffee
Mix everything, but 1/2 a cup of shredded coconut flakes, in to a blender, roll in to balls and garnish with the remaining coconut flakes (you could also garnish with “pärlsocker”/nib sugar. Put in the fridge for 20-30 min.
Original recipe from Swedish sweets & more.
Voilá! Smaklig måtid!
