Servings 20 balls

Ingredients
 

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ¾ cup raw unsalted almond butter
  • ½ cup soft pitted dates
  • cup coconut butter
  • ¼ cup raw unsalted almonds
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 tbsp. flax meal
  • 2 tbsp. chia seeds

Instructions
 

  • Place your almonds into the food processor. Pulse until almonds are chopped into small pieces, depending on your food processor this should only take about 30 seconds-1 minute.
  • Add your rolled oats and process for 20 seconds until the oats have become almost flour like but still have a bit of texture.
  • Place your chia seeds, flax meal, almond butter, coconut butter and dates into the food processor.
  • Process until everything is combined and a crumbly dough starts to form.
  • Now add your almond milk and process until a cookie like dough is formed.
  • Scoop a heaping tablespoon and roll in the palm of your hand to form a smooth ball. I find it is easiest to roll these if I first squish the dough a few times in my hand before rolling them in the palm of my hand. Repeat until you have used all of your dough.
  • You can dig right in but I like to let my energy balls rest in the fridge for about 15-20 minutes. This helps them to stick together a little better and I prefer to eat these cold.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • Store your energy balls in an airtight container. I generally freeze mine to keep them fresh. Take them on the go and they will be ready to eat in less than 10 minutes! 
  • If your dates are hard place in a small bowl and cover them with hot water. Allow to set for 10 minutes to soften your dates. Drain the water after the dates have soaked for 10 minutes.
