Vegan Paleo chocolate almond balls – easy, come together in minutes recipe, delicious, healthy and great snack.

Paleo chocolate almond balls - easy and delicious snack.

Paleo chocolate almond balls

I thought I was prepared before our first baby arrived.

Not prepared as in prepared to be a mother (not sure you can really be totally prepared for that), I mean prepared as in stocking the pantry, having a stash of meals in the freezer and enough toilet paper and dishwashing detergent to last at least 6 months.

Paleo chocolate almond balls - easy and healthy snack.

The one thing I didn’t think of was healthy snacks.

I didn’t realise how hungry I would be breastfeeding or how little time I would have to make myself a snack.

Days would go by without me even poking my head out the window for air.

I think I might be making up for it now because every week, there is a new healthy snack in my kitchen.

There are a few requirements for me when it comes to healthy snacks.

It must be delicious and preferably taste like a treat.

It must be easy to grab and eat with one hand and it must be healthy.

Oh and they need to be pretty easy and quick to make.

My Paleo chocolate almond balls fit all the requirements and they have just three ingredients.

The secret is roasting the almonds. It adds a very special touch.

I think they taste a bit like a almond version of Ferrero Rocher.

I didn’t have any medjool dates so used pitted dates and they worked just as well but I had to add a little bit of water.

You could also press the mixture into a baking tin and cut into squares (my 30 second bliss ball hack) which would be even easier than making the balls.

I think they’d freeze pretty well too – the perfect make-ahead snack for future snack emergencies (yes there is such a think).

Enjoy!

What about you? What are your requirements when it comes to a good snack?
