Go (Coco) Nuts for Energy Balls

Snacks

Full of protein, these energy balls are a hit with everyone.  Ideal as a snack, you should only eat one or two at a time but they will keep in a covered container for up to a week (if they haven’t been eaten before!).

Serving size:  Makes 20-24 balls.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups dates (pitted)
  • 2 cups almonds or mixed nuts
  • ¼ cup unsweetened raw cocoa powder
  • ¾ cup desiccated coconut (1/4 cup for mixture, ½ cup for rolling)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk or water
Instructions
  1.  Put dates, nuts, cocoa power, ¼ cup of coconut and sea salt in food processor and process until the mixture ressembles bread crumbs.
  2. Add vanilla extract and 1 tbsp of nut milk.  Process until mixture holds together when squeezed into a ball.  If it doesn’t do this, add 1 more tbsp of nut milk.
  3. Put desiccated coconut on a plate.  Roll mixture into balls with your hands.  Roll each ball in the desiccated coconut.  Ready to eat.

Notes:  Store for up to a week in a sealed container.

Allergy advice:  Contains nuts.
