I love dates, it’s such a good source of vitamins and minerals. These energy balls are so healthy: you can add them to your lunch box, use them when you are craving something sweet or snack them after exercise.
4 big medjool dates (depending on the size of your dates, you can choose to put more)
2 tbsp of melted chocolate chips (prefer dark chocolate 75% cacao and more)
1 tbsp of almond butter,
Options: chia seeds, hemp seeds, grated unsweetened coconut, ground or shredded almonds.
Coat: cocoa powder, shredded coconut or almond meal.
Soak the dates in hot water for 10min. Drain.
In a bowl, mash the dates with all the other ingredients (except coat options) until relatively smooth.
Form small balls with your hands.
Place cacao powder (or other options) on a plate and roll the bolls in it to coat.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes before tasting.
Can be kept 1 week in the refrigerator and 3 months in the freezer.
