These energy balls have helped me retain my energy while doing all the stuff I need – amazing energy booster.
These are no-bake, so you know that these are easy to make. These are full of healthy stuff, too, like nuts. I used walnut and cashews coz those were the ones I had. You can also use almonds and pistachio. You can use 1-3 tbsp (or more) cocoa powder. I like mine on the chocolatey side, so I used 3 tbsp and the taste is awesome for me. I used Medjool dates which are not too soft – I had to add water. Depending on the texture of your dates, you may or may not add water. These are super healthy and make a good snack. 😉
Choco-Dates Energy Balls
These are no-bake energy balls and make a good snack – yummy and healthy!
- 210 g dates pitted
- 35 g walnuts roasted
- 50 g cashews roasted
- 3 tbsp desiccated coconut
- 3 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp water (you may or may not need this)
- Nuts (ground), cocoa powder and/or desiccated coconut, for coating
In a food processor, add all ingredients except for the ingredients for coating and water. Pulse until combined. When you feel that the mixture comes together and can be formed into balls, then you don’t have to add water. (This will be depending on the texture of your dates.) Otherwise, you have to add water.
When the mixture is ready, remove from the food processor and transfer into a bowl.
Take about 1 1/2 tbsp of the mixture and form into balls.
Roll the balls to your preferred coating.
Keep the balls in the fridge inside an airtight container.
