Christmas Raw Balls Recipe

Here´s my recipe for Chrismas Raw Balls: Cacao Orange Raw Balls and Cinnamon Cardamom Raw Balls. They´re very easy to make and taste delicious! Cacao and orange is a really good combination, and cinnamon cardamom raw balls taste like cinnamon buns! If you want to make these two different flavours at the same time, just divide the mixture into two equal parts once you´ve made the mixture and add the extra ingredients separately.

This recipe makes 25-30 small raw balls in total.

Prep time: 30 minutes (+ 1 hour)

How to make Cacao Orange Raw Balls

  1. Soak cashew nuts in water for about an hour.
  2. Add raisins, dates, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds in a food processor. Mix well.
  3. If your coconut oil is solid, warm it up until it´s liquid and then add it into the mixture. Also, add agave syrup. Mix well.
  4. If you want to make both two flavours, divide the mixture into two equal parts. Place the other part in a bowl and leave the other part in a food processor. Otherwise, you can just make more of your preferred flavour.
  5. Wash and dry the orange with a paper towel. Hold the orange in one hand and the grater in the other over a bowl or chopping board that will collect the grated zest.
  6. Add the orange zest and cacao powder in a food processor. Mix well.
  7. Your mixture is ready. Place the mixture in a bowl. Take small bits at the time and roll them into small balls.
  8. Place some shredded coconut on a plate and roll those balls in it.
  9. Place the raw balls in a container in the fridge. Keep them refrigerated at least for 1-2 hours before serving.
