I love simple, healthy snacks that I can munch on whenever I get hungry. Fruit and veggies both make great snacks, but usually I need something a little more.

These chocolate cake bites are so easy to make, super good for you, and taste just like a German Chocolate Cake.

Ever since I discovered the health benefits of cacao — like how it’s high in minerals like magnesium, potassium, and iron — I make sure to get a serving of this superfood into my diet daily.

Like my 3-Ingredient Cookie Dough Bites, trust me when I say, you can’t just have one, you’ll be hooked.

German Chocolate Cake Bites

Makes approximately 10 tablespoon-sized bites


  • 1/2 cup (6-7) fresh medjool dates (pitted)
  • 1/2 cup raw pecans
  • 2 Tablespoons raw, organic cacao
  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut


Place pecans and coconut into a high-speed blender or food processor. Process on high until ingredients are a flour-like consistency.

Add the remaining ingredients to the blender/processor, and blend on medium to high until fully incorporated into the dry ingredients.

Dump the mixture into a bowl. Take a tablespoon worth of the mixture in between your hands, rolling to form a ball. Repeat until all of the mixture is used.

Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to five days. (If they can last that long!)
