Simple Raw Date Fudge Balls {Vegan and Gluten Free}

Raw Fudge Date Balls

Skip the chocolate hangover this Easter and try these delicious and easy Raw Date Fudge Balls! Chocolate eggs and Easter bunny’s have been occupying the supermarket shelves since January. I love my festive holidays as much as the next person but also like to try and keep my distance from the Nestles and Cadbury’s of the world as much as possible.

“Although dates are unable to be sourced locally, they are a great alternative to sugar. They are also high in numerous antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre making then a great snack at anytime of the day.”


This Easter skip that 200g chocolate bunny that is guaranteed to NOT be fair trade. Think twice about what that palm oil is doing in your chocolate, and if its worth devastating the orangutans rain forest so you can give into your sweet tooth. These Raw Date Fudge Balls are guaranteed to satisfy even the biggest chocoholics and just one of these sweet little treats usually does the trick!

pinch of ginger powder
1/4 cup sunflower seeds or chia seeds (optional)

Roll the now completed fudge balls in the dessicated coconut so they are coated evenly. Done!
