Chocolate Sweet Potato Balls

One of my favorite quick snacks to have on hand: any kind of date/nut balls! I'm always coming up with new varieties. Just throw the ingredients in the food processor and you're ready to go. I like these Chocolate Sweet Potato Balls because they sneak in a vegetable, and you'd never know. The sweet potato adds a nice sweetness and moisture. And again, more chocolate flavor in a healthy way. I'll add some to my breakfast or grab a few before heading out to the gym.

Chocolate Sweet Potato Balls

Makes 12-14 balls


  • 1 1/4 cup medjool dates
  • 1/2 cup cooked sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp raw cacao powder


Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Top with a mix of shredded coconut and cacao powder. Store in the refrigerator.
