Ingredients


14 date(s) Dates (soaked in warm water)
1/4 cup Almond butter
2 tbsp Cacao powder, raw
2 tbsp Coconut flakes, unsweetened
2 tbsp Chia seeds, ground
2 tbsp Honey, raw
1/4 cup Dark chocolate chips (as desired)

Instructions


1. Remove the pits from 14 Medjool dates. Soak the dates in warm water for 10 minutes, then rinse and drain.

 

2. Add the soaked dates, almond butter, cocoa powder, almonds, coconut flakes, chia seeds, and honey to a food processor. Process until all the ingredients are blended and a thick dough forms. It should be processed enough that you can remove small portions of the dough and form them into small balls. 

 

3. Remove the dough from the food processor and gently fold in the chocolate chips. Mix together until everything is combined. 
 

4. Place dough in the refrigerator for 1 hour. This is to help it firm up to and make it easier to roll the energy balls.

5. Once the dough has solidified a bit, remove it from the fridge and remove about 1 tbsp of dough at a time to roll into balls. Do this until all the dough is rolled out. Place in an air-tight container and store in your fridge or freezer.
