Description

These no bake brownie energy balls are the perfect snack bites to have on hand when a chocolate craving hits. Only 7 ingredients needed!


Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup raw walnuts
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup (about 10) medjool dates, pitted*
  • 2 Tablespoons cacao (or cocoa) powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 Tablespoon dark chocolate chips (dairy-free if needed)

Instructions

  1. Process: Add walnuts, cashews, dates, cacao powder, vanilla, and salt in a food processor fitted with the S-shaped blade. Process until mixture is well combined and sticking together. Add chocolate chips and pulse once more to disperse.
  2. Form balls: Once mixture is combined, use your hands to form the dough into balls, using about 1 Tablespoon of dough for each ball. Enjoy right away or store for later.
  3. To store: Place balls into a sealed storage container and store in the fridge for 1-2 weeks or the freezer for up to 3 months.

Notes

  • Hard/dry dates: If your dates are hard and dry, you can soak them in warm water for 10-15 minutes to soften. Just drain them well before using.
  • Crumbly dough: If your dough seems too crumbly to stick together after processing even when squeezing it together with your hands, you can try adding a couple more dates or adding 1 teaspoon of water at a time until the mixture starts to hold together well enough to form into balls. See note above.
