Paleo Raw Chocolate Bites

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!

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!

  1. This recipe caught my eye when I was looking for a weekend treat for my family and me. I used ground almonds as we didn’t have any pulp. The mix wouldn’t hold together in balls so I added an egg and gave it another whizz in the food processor. Bingo! Cookie dough! I made teaspoon-sized cookies, flattened them out on a tray using another sheet of baking paper on top, and baked them at 180 Celsius (I think that’s 350F?) for about 10 minutes. We demolished the lot in less than 24 hours!

    • I make my own almond milk so have plenty of pulp for these delicious bites and make them often. I have added apple juice sweetened cranberries for a tart addition. I just made a batch and added a handful of walnuts when I pulsed in the almond pulp. Dagoba 100% organic chocolate is the best!! Thanks for all of your great recipes!

  2. Made these yesterday. They are great. We used 70% Theo brand chocolate, worked out perfect. Thanks. Will be making these again soon.

  3. I’m confused…it says these are “raw”, but your using chocolate that is not raw…and has more than 5 ingredients.

  4. Hi Elena, this looks great. You are talking about home-made nut milk. I did that before. It is simple and much better than the ones you can buy. Do you have any specials to share (milks)? Best Steph

    • This along milk recipe is bullet-proof.

      1 quart water
      1 cup raw almonds
      Spin it up in a REAL blender (like a Ninja) for 5 minutes.
      Pour it through some old (but clean) t-shirt.
      Squeeze out the pulp.
      Plop the pulp I name freezer
      Go doing the milk. Much creamier than the story bought variety.

  5. 100% dark chocolate ~ now you’re speaking my language. Love that stuff. We have this awesome donut shop around me that makes this tiny donut holes rolled in coconut and they are like 100 calories each. And you know, it’s not just about the calories for me, because I like good fats. It’s all that processed junk in them! Yuck. As always, I just appreciate that the ingredients you use are ones I feel good about using. Once read to avoid C.R.A.P. which equals carbonated drinks, refined sugars, alcohol and processed foods. I do my best!!!
