Prep Time 10 mins
Total Time 10 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond flour or about 1 cup almonds ground down to flour
  • 1.5 cups medjool dates about 15 dates
  • 1.5 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut more to coat the energy balls

Instructions

  • Add all of the ingredients in to a food processor or high powered blender.
  • Blend on high until everything is combined.
  • The mixture should stick together when formed in to a ball. If it doesn't, try adding another date or two until it does.
  • Form the mixture in to 8 balls, then roll through them through additional coconut if you'd like.
  • Store them in the refrigerator. I take mine out about 10-30 minutes before I'm going to eat them. They'll keep well in the refrigerator for a few days, or in the freezer for 2-3 months when properly sealed.

Notes

You can make your balls smaller if you'd prefer to lighten up the calories. These are also delicious with some mix-in options like 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips, nuts, dried cherries, or some chia seeds.
