Method

  1. Process the pitted dates in a food processor until they form a sticky paste.
  2. Add the peanut butter, chia seeds and salt, followed by the coconut flour, and process until the mixture is smooth and well combined. The mixture will be slightly sticky.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and freeze, uncovered, for about 10 minutes (this will make it easier to shape).
  4. Using a teaspoon, scoop the chilled mixture and shape into small balls, then place on a lined tray and place back in the freezer for 10 minutes, until firm.
  5. Meanwhile, melt chocolate and add the coconut oil, stirring until smooth and glossy. Allow to cool slightly before coating.
  6. Remove balls from the freezer and coat each one with the melted chocolate before placing on the tray lined with baking paper.
  7. Chill in the refrigerator for half an hour, or until the chocolate coating is set.
