  • 80 g roasted roasted hazelnuts
  • 90 g blanched almonds
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp cacao powder
  • 12 tsp baobab powder
  • 1 zested orange
  • 1 tbsp cacao nibs


Add the hazelnuts and almonds into the food processor and blend until you get a breadcrumb-like texture.

Add the coconut oil, maple syrup, cacao and orange zest and blend. The mixture should now be clumping together. If it isn’t, add another tablespoon of coconut oil.

Roll 1 heaped tablespoon of mixture into golf ball sized balls using your hands and set aside. Repeat for the rest of the mixture.

To decorate, sprinkle the zest of an orange onto a plate and individually roll the balls onto the mixture to give them a coating. Repeat with ground cacao or cacao nibs. Try a combination!

Pop the coated balls in the fridge for an hour/ freezer for 10 minutes or eat them as they are!
