For 18 energy balls, you'll need:
- 1 cup raw almonds
- 15 Medjool dates, pitted (1.5 cups)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1/. Place the almonds into a food processor and process on high until you’ve created a fine almond meal, but not to the point of a paste.
2/. Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and process on high until everything is combined. Add one or two teaspoons of water if necessary.
3/. Scoop a heaped tablespoon of dough into your hands and roll into a ball. Roll the ball in shredded coconut and place on a baking sheet. Repeat until dough is all used up!
4/. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 10-15 minutes and then transfer balls to a freezer safe bag and store in the freezer. They can be stored for up to 3 months if you don't eat them all straight away.
