Cacao & Orange Power Balls – Recipe

Ingredients (makes about 16 balls).

  • 200 g pitted medjool dates
  • 50g pumpkin seeds (ground)
  • 50g sunflower seeds (ground)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. pure orange extract
  • 3 tbsps.  cacao or cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsps. melted coconut oil
  • 20g natural whey or vegan blend protein powder (or just don’t bother with this bit!)


  • Add everything to a food processor and blend until well combined.
  • Using a teaspoon take chunks of the mixture and roll together with clean hands into balls.
  • Place desiccated coconut onto a plate and gently roll each ball in it until coated.
  • Store the balls in the fridge for minimum 1 hour to set, keep in the fridge, and enjoy!
  • They can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 months (if there’s any left to freeze!)


As soon as I’ve made them, I will post a picture.  In the meantime, you know what a power ball looks like – little brown balls of chewy goodness.  Can’t wait!!
