Amaze balls

Amaze balls recipe The Body Refinery online

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!
