Coconut Kisses Recipe – A Healthy Lunchbox Or Coffee Morning Snack

Coconut kisses are delicious, quite healthy and an easy lunch box snack or great for coffee mornings with the girls! If you have a food processor, this is really, really easy! If not a little bit of time and effort makes these moments in your mouth treats.

  • Recipe Serves: 20


  • 1 large cup of chopped pitted dates
  • Half a cup of chopped walnuts
  • Half a cup of chopped almonds
  • 1 tsp of vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp of almond essence
  • 3 tbs of cocoa powder (cheap powder or drinking chocolate will suffice)
  • Handful of milk chocolate chips if desired


  1. Chop or process all the ingredients, excluding the chocolate chips (see number 8) and coconut, making sure you have mixed it well.
  2. Put the coconut on to flat plate. You could also roll these in icing sugar or more chopped nuts.
  3. As quickly as you can, roll a small lump of the mixture in the palm of your hand to a ‘mouthful’ sized piece
  4. Roll in the coconut and set aside on a separate plate.
  5. Continue rolling these delicious bites until you have finished
  6. Store in the fridge or these can be frozen for another time
  7. If you really want to impress, buy some sweet wrappers and give these away for birthdays or special occasions, maybe in a little chocolate box or organza purse.
  8. If adding the chocolate chips, put these into the processed ingredients and then melt the mixture in the microwave on high for about 30 seconds. Mix well before rolling – but be quick, as your hands will get quite sticky!
