1 CUP OF DATES
1 CUP OF RAW ALMONDS
½ CUP OF SHREDDED COCONUT
1 TO 2 TBSP OF COCOA POWDER
1 TSP OF VANILLA
Place ingredients in a food processor until all ingredients are mixed well together. Form in to small balls and roll in to shredded coconut, ground nuts or dip in to chocolate. Place on parchment lined cookie and sheet and put in fridge for a few hours to set. Makes 24 balls
I have started soaking the dates in 1/4 cup of filtered water for about ½ before using and when you are ready to pour the dates in to the mixture, pour the water with it. It makes for much easier mixing and the energy balls have more moisture
I use and like carob powder over cocoa powder but it is just a personal preference and I tend save it for last and mix it in by hand just before forming the balls
To make the balls even in size, I use rounded teaspoon and tablespoon measurers and a pointed utensil to remove from spoon.
