Servings 8

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almonds or cashews
  • 1 cup dates, soaked 30 minutes and drained
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa or cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • Extra toasted sesame seeds to roll balls in 

Instructions

  • Add the almonds, dates, coconut, cocoa powder and sesame seeds to a food processor.
    Blend until broken down and mixture becomes sticky and holds together when pressed between your fingers.
    Be careful not to over process as its nice to have some different sized ‘bits’ in your energy balls.
    Scoop 2 tablespoons of the mixture into your palm and form into a ball.
    Use your finger to create a crater in the center of the ball. Spoon about ½ teaspoon of peanut butter into the crater.
    Cupping the filled ball, pinch the edges closed around the peanut butter.
    Roll the filled energy ball back into a round sphere.
    Transfer it to a plate. Repeat with the remaining mixture and peanut butter.
    Roll in toasted sesame seeds.
    Store these energy balls in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
    Store in the freezer for up to 2 months.
