  • 300 grams soft date (pitted)
  • 200 grams walnut (ground)
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest


  • Take out 1-2 tablespoon ground walnuts.
  • Place the pitted dates, ground walnuts, cocoa powder and orange zest in the food processor and blend until a smooth, thick “dough” is formed.
  • Make balls and roll them in shredded ground walnuts.


If dates are too dry, soak them in warm water for 10-30 minutes until they soften.
Store them an airtight container. They will last about 10-14 days in the fridge.
