    Originally called chocolate fudge balls, I changed the name in honour of my best mate, Kim. After providing her with the recipe, she was quick to tell me that “these Amaze balls are addictive!” It is worth making a few batches and keeping them in the freezer (if they last!). Amaze balls really hits the spot when you crave something sweet but want to remain healthy.


    SERVES – 12 balls



    • 1 cup of fresh dates, pitted (I use Medjool dates)
    • 1 cup of roasted almonds or walnuts (to roast walnuts, place in the microwave for 1 ½ minutes)
    • ½ cup desiccated coconut
    • 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder or pure cocoa powder, sifted
    • Splash of vanilla bean extract or essence for extra flavour



    Blend dates, almonds, vanilla and cacao in a processor. Use your hands to combine ingredients until they form a “ball”.

    Roll into small balls, and squeeze firmly. Coat in coconut (not needed)

    TIP: You may need to add 1 tablespoon of warm water to help the ingredients “stick” together. I use a bit of vanilla essence for flavour!

    Great to satisfy a savoury craving and a healthy alternative to crisps! Nuts make a healthy snack that is low in calories and with great sources of protein.



    • 1 cup mixed nuts
    • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
    • 1 Tsp Moroccan spice mix or a mix of ground cumin, coriander, chili and salt
    • Extra pinch of chili flakes (optional to taste)



    Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the spice mix (and chili if using). Stir for just a few seconds until fragrant.

    Add the nuts and stir until well coated in the spice mix and starting to turn a brown colour. Remove from the heat as soon as you start to smell the nuts roasting (stand over them as they burn easily). Remove from pan and serve.



    Serves 1
