I’m on a bit of a raw foods kick lately. I’ve been making nut milks for myself and the boys, and I’ve just created my fourth recipe for this website that uses the leftover almond pulp from my Almond Milk recipe. Given how expensive almonds are right now this strategy is key!
These super easy no-bake cookies have only 5 ingredients — 100% dark chocolate, almond pulp, dates, coconut, and salt. I haven’t tried it yet, but I imagine these Paleo Raw Chocolate Bites would taste amazing with Brazil Nut Milk pulp. If you would like a little kick in your raw cookies, you could try using Tumeric Root Milk pulp in these. If you do decide to try out any of the endless possibilities please leave a comment to let us know how they turn out!
Paleo Raw Chocolate Bites
- 4 ounces 100% dark chocolate, chopped
- ½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
- 1 cup almond pulp
- 1 cup dates (remove pits)
- ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- In a food processor pulse chocolate and salt until the texture of sand
- Pulse in almond pulp, then dates, until well combined
- Use a 1 tablespoon ice cream scoop to form level balls
- Place balls on a plate
- Place shredded coconut in a small bowl
- Dip each ball into shredded coconut
You may wish to use a sweeter chocolate in this recipe if you have young children. I think these raw cookies would work really well with a 75% chocolate such as Kallari, or an even sweeter product such as Enjoy Life Chocolate. This is a great healthy homemade cookie recipe that your little ones can help make. Have them roll the dough into balls for you and dip the cookies into the shredded coconut. That’s what I call free labor, and it will keep the kids out of trouble. I love putting my boys to work in the kitchen. It’s become incredibly helpful over the years and a wonderful source of bonding for us!

Hi, Elana! Thanks for another easy and great recipe. I just made the bites, but I only got 14 bites not 20 like you statedin the serving size. They tasted pretty good. I would like to know where to store them once done if you do not plan to eat them all on the first serving. Thanks once again and I hope to see your response. Have a blessed Memorial Day!
Elizabeth, thanks for letting me know this recipe is easy and great! If you scoop these into level tablespoons as indicated in the instructions of this recipe you will get a yield of 20 and maybe a bit more. I store these in an air tight container in the fridge. I hope your Memorial Day was blessed :-)
Love the idea of not having to dry the pulp -never seem to get round to it and end up throwing it away. Can raw cacao powder be used instead of chocolate please?
Thanks Sandy! I haven’t tried that so not sure :-)

I love his recipe!!! If I don’t have almond pulp on hand can I substitute almond flour instead? If yes, how much? Thanks!
Hi there! I haven’t tried that so not sure :-)
Did you end up using the powder? How did it turn out?
