The name doesn’t lie: this recipe is pure bliss. The coc and coconut flavors with an added walnut crunch are the dessert you’ve been missing. And for an extra bonus: they don’t even require baking!


  • 2 cup California walnuts
  • 2 tablespoon unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 10 pitted Medjool dates
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes and unsweetened cocoa powder (optional coating)


  1. Place walnuts in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
  2. Add coconut, cocoa powder, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and dates; pulse again until mixture forms a thick paste. (Don’t process too long or mixture will become too sticky.)
  3. Roll into 16 equal balls, then roll in additional coconut or cocoa powder if desired. Store in the refrigerator or freezer until ready to serve.
