It’s SNACK TIME!!! These cacao coconut rough balls are the easiest snacks to make and are perfect for chocoholics, like me!!! Throw it all into a blender and roll them up into bite-size energy balls. It’s as simple as that!! There is much hype about cacao and I am absolutely crazy for it!! Cacao is the raw unprocessed for of cocoa and is considered a “super-food”. The benefits of cacao are phenomenal: rich in antioxidants, contains essential vitamins and minerals, promotes healthy skin, mood enhancing… intense chocolate flavour!! I’m addicted to this stuff!! I love the combination of chocolate and coconut and these balls are packed full of goodies, which will keep you energized throughout the day! Even possibly bouncing up and down the walls!! YIPPEE!! 😉

    Made these and LOVE the crunch of the buckini’s! Also added some mesquite for a protein boost too. Yum! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe.

    I made these yesterday and as I also didn’t have buckinis on hand I used crushed hazelnuts and they are delicious! I’m sure you could do this with virtually any nut/seed combination you like.

    Hi! What are ‘buckinis’ exactly ? I looked all over the internet and I just can’t find the right translation. I’ve raw buckwheat seeds, are those the same or is there a kind of proces that makes buckinis out of buckwheat?

    So excited to try these balls! Looks perfect for a snack, just wanted to ask if you know roughly how many calories would be in them? Thank you

    I made these without buckinis and by hand
    I just chopped the dates really fine. I didn’t use a processer
    I made some with hazelnut

    These were delicious!! Majority of the raw vegan food I’ve made is kinda gross, but they were soooooo good.
