Or, ChocoNanaDamia Balls, if you like a bit of wordplay! These little delights are different to a lot of the ‘raw’ treats you might find at cafes — using bananas to sweeten and bind, and macadamias for a nutty depth that can’t be beat! (sidenote: ChocoMacaNana Balls?)

You will need

Makes 20

  • 300 grams dried banana
  • 1 fresh banana
  • 150 grams desiccated coconut, toasted
  • 100 grams roasted macadamias
  • 100 grams 80% dark chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • Untoasted desiccated coconut, to coat

15 mins to prep

mins to cook

  1. Step 1

    Add all of the ingredients, except the untoasted desiccated coconut, to a food processor. Blitz until a dough begins to form. The mixture should hold its shape when you squeeze a handful of it together.

  2. Step 2

    Roll 1-tablespoon portions into balls, drop into the untoasted desiccated coconut, and roll to coat. Place in the fridge for 1 hour to set — though they will taste delicious straight away anyway!

  3. Step 3

    Enjoy as a dessert, snack, or even breakfast if you fancy something a bit sweet! These will keep well for about a week, if stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
