Good Food Friday: My Balls

So I’m a big fan of balls. All kinds of nutrition packed balls, and for all the fabulous recipes out there I often just throw some good looking ingredients in my thermomix and wing it. So far so good, I’m yet to make a bad batch. But this week I have wowed myself with what is the best batch yet. I of course can’t keep all that goodness to myself, so I’m sharing with you this Good Food Friday!



  • 1.5 cups almonds
  • 1 cup medjool dates (seeds removed)
  • 1/2 cup cacao butter
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1/2 cup protein powder. I like these brands here and here.
  • 3 tbsp. cacao
  • 1 tbsp. chia seed


Simply whiz all ingredients together in a food processor until well processed and mixed together. You want it to be a nice consistency that you can roll together and make small balls. If it needs more moisture, simply add a tablespoon of water until it is the right consistency.

Makes approximately 20

    Hi Nat, I do not use protein powders as I have a dairy intolerance and was wondering is there was something you could use to replace the protein powder in this recipe or would you simply make the balls without it? Cheers

    This made me smile as I have exactly the same kind of relationship with my Thermomix! Throw it in and turn it up 🙂 My favourite ball flavour combo so far is cacao powder and orange zest with goji berries.

    Hi Nat- Love a thermomix ball! Question- do you need to melt the cacao butter?
    Also have you thought about doing a thermomix recipe book? I would buy it!

    Hi Nat. So this is the first recipe I tried from your website…mainly as I had cacao butter for a while and this included it. Although the recipe tasted good and my toddler daughters loved it (is it ok for them too>) it was a powder and not anything I could make into a ball. I found I had to carve out the cacao butter. Are you supposed to melt it first or how do I make it come together?
