Description

These healthy coconut chocolate chip energy balls are made with only 5 simple ingredients. They’re super easy to prep and taste like a decadent treat.


Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups medjool dates, pitted
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Process nuts: Place coconut, almonds and cashews into food processor fitted with the S-blade and pulse until everything is chopped into small pieces. Place nut mixture in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Process dates: Put dates into the food processor and pulse until a paste forms. The dates will probably form into a sticky ball. If they do, break about the ball a bit with your hands.
  3. Add remaining ingredients: Add nuts and coconut back into the processor with the dates and pulse until well combined. Add chocolate chips and pulse a few more times, until they’re just incorporated.
  4. Form balls: Once mixture is combined, use your hands (or a cookie scoop) to scoop and form the dough into balls, using about 1 Tablespoon of dough for each ball. Enjoy right away or store for later.
  5. To store: Store any leftovers in the fridge with parchment paper between them for 1-2 weeks or in 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.
