Chocolate Coconut Energy Balls

Well, I know it's been FOREVER since my last blog post and there are only exciting reasons for that.  I have decided to focus all my time on Nourish Through Nature!  One of my newest projects is writing a monthly column for the Fernie Fix Magazine.  Check out my article's here!

In my most recent article I gave one of my recipes for a tasty energy ball...

½ Cup raw almonds

¼ Cup raw walnut pieces or more almonds

¼ Cup of hemp seeds

10 pitted medjool dates

¼ Cup raw cacao powder

1 Tbsp filtered or spring water

1 good pinch of Himalayan sea salt, don’t be shy

1 tsp wheatgrass powder or unflavoured greens powder (optional)

⅓ Cup unsweetened shredded coconut (for rolling)

 Directions:

  1. Combine almonds, walnuts and hemp seeds in a food processor or blender and process into a fine meal.
  2. Add the dates and process until well incorporated.
  3. Add remaining ingredients except the shredded coconut and combine until dough is formed.  Place shredded coconut in a small bowl. 
  4. Roll into 1 tablespoon balls then roll each ball in coconut to coat.
  5. Place your energy balls in a air tight container in the fridge or freezer.  Keep refrigerated until serving.
