No Bake Almond Joy Energy Balls

Ingredients

  • 2 cups dates
  • 2 cups almonds
  • 1 scoop Solgar Whey to Go chocolate protein powder
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¾ cup unsweetened coconut flakes (reserve 1/2 cup for rolling)
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk

Instructions

  • Put 1/2 cup of coconut flakes into the food processor and process to break up flakes slightly (about 1 minute). Do not over-process or it will become coconut butter.
  • Remove flakes and set aside.
  • Place dates in the food processor and process until they have broken up and come together into a ball.
  • Break up the date-ball with hands and add in almonds, Whey to Go, cocoa powder, 1/4 cup of coconut flakes and sea salt.
  • Mix for several minutes, scraping down the sides as needed.
  • Add in vanilla extract and 1 tbsp. of almond milk.
  • Process until mixture comes back together into a ball. If it doesn’t do this, add in 1 more tablespoon of almond milk. It should look like the photo above.
  • Remove mixture from the food processor and roll into 2 dozen balls.
  • Roll each ball in the coconut flakes you processed earlier.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for several weeks.
