Healthy Chocolate Covered Amazeballs | Real Food RN

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 friend’s (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!

Healthy Chocolate Covered Amazeballs

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!!!

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

Instructions

1. In a food processor, chop dates until they resemble crumbles.

2. 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.

3. Roll into balls and place on a Silpat lined baking sheet.

4. Put the sheet into the freezer until they are firm.

5. Melt chocolate in a double boiler.

6. Using a toothpick, pierce the date balls and dip into chocolate until well coated.

7. Place back onto a baking sheet and put all of them back into the freezer until chocolate has hardened. Enjoy!

  1. This sounds so yummy! I think I would roll some of them in chopped nuts, too. Thanks for the idea….I need more quick ones like this. And my kids are getting pickier as they get older. We're now 9 and 12 and it's more exposure to the "mainstream world" that is getting to them. Ugh.

  2. OMG good! It was worth the wait to be able to make and savor these delicious treats! This will be a potluck staple at work and family get togethers! I will not tell them how healthy it is! LOL

        1. Tell me about it! I have to keep them in the freezer in the garage just so they are harder to get to — otherwise I would eat the entire batch in one day!

  3. I have one word–GONE!
    Actually a second word–MORE!
    YEP! Another…NOW!
    In fact, another name for Kate’s Amazingballs–GONEMORENOWPLEASE!

    Slipped a tiny peice of crunchy bacon in the center of mine.
