Chocolate Date Cashew Balls

I like to make these after dinner so that they’re ready the next morning. I love to have them as a quick breakfast when I don’t have time or I’m too lazy to make anything other than coffee! These are also a great way satisfy your afternoon sweet tooth. 

A serving of 5 date balls is approximately 260 calories, has 5.6 grams of dietary fiber, 5.5 grams of protein and close to 10% of the recommended daily intake of iron! 

Ingredients:

  • 15 pitted dates
  • ½ cup cashews
  • 2 tbsp flax meal
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 ½ tbsp. melted coconut oil

 Makes approximately 25 date balls.

Directions:

 1.) Slightly mix all of the ingredients, except coconut oil, in a bowl or place directly into a food processor.

2.) Add the melted coconut oil to the mix in the food processor. Process ingredients until they’re all a kind of paste.

3.)  (You’ll get a little messy and sticky in this step!) With clean hands, pick a tablespoon-sized piece from the mixture and roll between your palms into a ball. Continue making balls from the mix until you’re all done!

4.) Place each ball into a container with a top (like a flat Tupperware), then put container in the fridge for at least 2 hours so they can set.

5.) Enjoy!
