Chocolate Coconut Date Energy Balls

These vegan energy balls are the perfect snack when craving something sweet. They're so easy you can whip them up in a matter of minutes. Dates, cashews and chocolate chips are blended together to form soft and chewy balls, which are then dipped in chocolate and rolled in coconut flakes. 

Ingredients: 

  • 22 Medjool dates 
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips 
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut 

Directions:

  1. In a food processor or strong blender, add the dates, cashews, 1/3 of the chocolate chips (the rest will be used later), cinnamon, and salt. Process until mixture is sticky and crumbly. Mixture should easily stick together when forming into a ball. If it doesn't, add a couple more dates.  
  2. Using your hands, roll into about 14 balls. 
  3. In a small bowl, add the remaining 2/3 cups chocolate chips and microwave in ten second intervals, stirring in between each interval, until melted. Set aside. 
  4. In a medium bowl, add the coconut. 
  5. One at a time, dip a ball in the chocolate , then roll in the coconut. 
  6. Place all the balls on a plate and refrigerate for 10 minutes for the chocolate to set. 

*Store in the fridge for a firmer consistency
