NO-BAKE ALMOND JOY ENERGY BALLS

I love hearing people’s reactions when they try their first energy ball. Most people can’t believe they’re healthy, a lot of people think they’re donut holes and only 5% of people are completely freaked out by the concept.

I’m not friends with those people.

In my wildest dreams I’d create healthy energy balls for everyone’s tastebuds! Mine love the blueberry muffin goodness, C is a sucker for the key lime pistachio and I’m willing to bet there’s quite a few of you who are craving these No-Bake Almond Joy Energy Balls and don’t even know it yet.

If you’re feeling generous, you can bring them as a hostess gift but my guess is that with just one bite of these, the whole concept of sharing will go right out the window. Welcome to the crazy world of energy balls!



INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups dates*
  • 2 cups almonds
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (reserve 1/2 cup for rolling)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1–2 T unsweetened almond milk

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Put 1/2 cup of coconut flakes into the food processor and process to break up flakes slightly (about 1 minute). Do not over-process or it will become coconut butter.
  2. Remove flakes and set aside
  3. Place dates in the food processor and process until they have broken up and come together into a ball.
