Energy balls – new recipe

I can’t believe how good these taste the day after making them, so I have to quickly write down the details.

I used 3 Medjool dates, 3-4 tbsp oatflakes, 3 tbsp ground flaxseeds, 3 tsps coconut flakes, 2 tsp sesame seeds, 2-3 tsp raw cacao powder, 2 tsp cacao nibs and 2-3 tsp cashew butter. I also poured a little bit of maple syrup on top so it sticks. Blended on pulse so its a nice chunky  consistency.

Rolled into tiny balls in the freezer for 30 minutes.

I then heated up some vegan chocolate bars to dip the frozen balls in. After melting the bars I added 1 tsp of coconut oil.  Sprinkled them with coconut flakes, cacao nibs or powder. There was not enough chocolate to cover all, but rolling them in raw  cacao powder did the trick.

I did store them at room temperature and they are wonderful! I guess I won’t have to worry about including more flaxseeds now.

Hooked on raw cacao

This shall help make up for the fat lost while running! I am so hooked on cacao nibs and raw cacao powder. Didn’t have nuts and used sesame and flaxseeds.
