Prep Time 10mins
Total Time 10mins
1 cup almond flouror about 1 cup almonds ground down to flour
1.5cupsmedjool datesabout 15 dates
1.5 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsppure vanilla extract
1/3cup shredded unsweetened coconutmore to coat the energy balls
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.
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.
