Swedish Chocolate Balls (Chokladbollar)


(Vegan+ GF)

In the Swedish language, call it chocolate balls, oatmeal balls, kokosballs, or chokladbollar. These yummy treats are my personal favorite.

Its the most healthy dessert one can have, however, in moderation;)

It is simple to prepare and requires no cooking or baking at all, put together some basic pantry ingredients in the blender, and voila, it’s ready in 10 minutes.

It is so simple that even a novice can pull it off.

The best part of it is dairy-free, vegan, and gluten-free. (AND guilt-free for people like me who have a sweet tooth.)

It is an extremely popular Swedish confectionery enjoyed all through Sweden.

The traditional Chokladbollars use rolled oats, cocoa, butter, vanilla, sugar, and coffee.

However, I have made tiny changes to suit my dietary needs and make them healthier.

Few tips-

1. Sugar- I have replaced sugar with dates. However, you may use white sugar, brown sugar, or coconut sugar.

2. Replace butter with coconut oil– I have used coconut oil in my recipe for a healthier alternative. If you wish to use coconut oil, you may replace butter with coconut oil using the same ratio.

3. Cinnamon- The traditional Chokladbollar doesn’t have cinnamon. However, I have added a pinch of cinnamon powder to this recipe. Feel free to add or skip.

How to make Swedish Chocolate Balls

1. Put all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until it’s well combined.

2. The mixture should be soft and easy to roll into balls. If it’s too dry, you can add in more coffee, and if it gets moist, you may add more oats.

3. Line a plate with parchment paper.

4. Shape the mixture into small bite-sized balls and lay it on the plate.

5. Roll each ball over the coconut flakes and refrigerate for 5-10 minutes before serving.

6. Store the leftover balls in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
