Chocolate Energy Balls
Love's Kitchen with Michele
250g cashew nuts
250g desiccated coconut
250g pitted dates
Sweetener to taste (raw honey, agave, stevia etc)
125g raw cacao
Blitz the cashews in a food processor until you get even crumbs
Add the coconut and do the same.
Add the dates and blitz until broken down.
Add the cacao and salt and blitz again.
Add sweetner a bit at a time, start with 2 tbsp then blitz and check the consistency - it should hold together in your hand when you squeeze it, if it crumbles, it needs more syrup or a bit of water. If it’s too squidgy, add a tiny bit more coconut.
Remove from the mixer and form into ball shapes using the palms of your hands
