For the Balls

  • 1 cup large flake oats

  • 1 cup toasted raw almonds

  • 1/3 cup cocoa or cacao powder

  • 1 cup shredded coconut

  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 cup pitted dates (I used Medjool)

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

  • 1/4 cup coconut milk ( I used canned)

For the Coating (optional)

  • 1/4 cup coconut milk

  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut


For the energy balls

  1. Place all other ingredients except the coconut milk in a food processor and process until it is smooth and starts to stick together, about 2 minutes. Slowly add the remaining (1/3 c.) coconut milk in a stream until it the mixture holds nicely together when pressed with your fingers. You may not need all of the coconut milk.

For the coating

  1. Put ½ cup of the shredded coconut and 1/4 cup of coconut milk in separate shallow bowls and set aside.

  2. Roll a tablespoon of the mixture in your hands to make a ball, immerse each ball in coconut milk (so that the coconut sticks), and roll in the shredded coconut to coat. Repeat with the remaining mixture.

Note: add protein powder for added macros
