Healthy Chocolate Recipe for Mothers Day

Recipe by Dr. Janet

Yield: 24 balls (1 Tablespoon per ball)


• 1 cup of cashews (can substitute with walnuts and/or almonds)
• 12 pitted dates
• ½ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
• 4 Tablespoons canola oil
• ¼ cup of pure maple syrup
• 1 tsp of vanilla
• 1 pinch of salt
• Optional coatings: shredded unsweetened coconut, unsweetened cocoa powder, chopped pistachios, chopped dried cherries


  • Place the cashews in a small bowl and add enough water to the bowl to just cover the cashews. Let the cashew soak for at least 2 hours.
  •  Once the cashews have soaked, microwave the dates for 1 minute. Add all the ingredients into a food processor/blender and mix until a smooth consistency.
  • Form 1 Tablespoon size balls and cover each ball in a coating of your choice. Put the coated balls onto a baking sheet and place into the freezer.
  • Remove balls 30 minutes before serving.
