These nut-free chocolate energy balls are perfect for the dark chocolate lover. They pack a super healthy punch with chia seeds, hemp seeds and cacao! They are also vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free.
- Place pitted dates in food processor, or strong blender, and process until dates are broken down into paste.
- Add remaining dry ingredients, and process until all seeds are broken down and mixture forms into dough-like consistency, about 1-2 minutes.
Scrape down sides as necessary.
- Form mixture into ball and let sit in fridge for 30 minutes to firm.
- After 30 minutes, use a rounded tablespoon for measuring dough and roll into balls.
You should get roughly 16 balls.
- Place balls on lined cookie sheet and let firm again in freezer.
- Store balls in container in freezer. Energy balls should keep fresh for 3 months.
