Energy Balls

Energy Balls

Makes: 20 Balls

Ingredients:

Energy Balls

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup pitted Medjool dates
  • 1 tbs pure maple syrup
  • 1 tbs almond butter
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbs dark chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. In a food processor, combine the cashew and oats and process until a semi-fine flour forms (30-60 seconds). Don’t over process or it will turn into butter.
  2. Add the dates and process again until they are finely chopped.
  3. Add the maple syrup, almond butter, vanilla, and salt. Process until combined.  The dough should stick together when you press it.  If it’s too dry, add a tsp of water and process again.
  4. Pulse in the chocolate chips until combined.
  5. Roll dough into balls (1 heaping tablespoon for each) and place in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
