It is just too hot to bake. I’m tired. I have no energy. I want brownies. Well I want a brownie type thing. I also want a treat that is way more healthy than a brownie. I need energy…
Do any of these statements work for you? Every one of them works for me!!
These energy balls are so delicious that your mouth will think that you are having a loaded brownie. You know those ones that you could buy in your old life that were full of nuts and coconut and all that stuff you now can’t have. These chocolate balls are also packed with protein, so you’ll get energy!
They are absolutely decadent, with no baking and best of all, NO Guilt!! Enjoy!!
Chocolate Energy Balls (Nut Free/ Vegan/ Grain Free/ Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/ Paleo/ Refined Sugar Free)
1 1/2 c. dates
1/4 c. sunflower seed butter (or desired type)
1 tsp. vanilla (I use mine)
3/4 c. pumpkin seeds
1/2 c. hemp hearts
1/2 c. unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 c. raw cacao (or cocoa)
1/4 tsp. sea salt
Place dates into food processor and pulse until they form a ball. Spread them back out and add sunflower seed butter and vanilla. Pulse until mixed. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until mixed.
Spoon out mixture and form into one inch balls.I wet my hands to roll balls to make it easier. Store in the fridge in a covered container for up to a week. Freezes well. Makes approximately 24 balls.
