I am always trying to come up with “healthy” dessert recipes so my kids are allowed treats without eating all that junk. I know if I deprive them of all sweets, they are very likely to binge on sugar at their friends (or grandparents) house. So I need to keep a balance here. This recipe was created from random foods in my fridge and cabinet in a four-alarm treat emergency. After I made them up and we all gave them a try, the only word that came to mind was “amazeballs” because I was just amazed at how so few ingredients could make such a delicious treat!!! So, naturally I had to call them chocolate covered amazeballs — a healthy version! Ingredients: 

  • 2 cups pitted dates
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup creamy almond butter (you will use more or less depending on how “juicy” your dates are)
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips — we use this kind because they are dairy, soy and gluten free


  • In a food processor, chop dates until they resemble crumbles
  • Transfer to mixing bowl and add sea salt and  almond butter, start with 1/4 cup almond butter and add more until you have a paste that can be formed into balls
  • Roll into balls and place on a silpat lined baking sheet
  • Put sheet into freezer until they are firm
  • Melt chocolate in a double boiler
  • Using a toothpick, pierce the date balls and dip into chocolate until well coated
  • Place back onto baking sheet and put all of them back into the freezer until chocolate has hardened
  • Enjoy!
