Matcha and coconut and cocoa, Oh My!
If you are low on time, these energy balls are great to have on hand as a snack or healthy dessert. They are kid-approved and last up to 2 weeks in the fridge. So this year, fill your Halloween bag with energy balls coated with your favorite toppings.
S/o to my little brother for being my hand model!
1 c old fashioned oats
1/2 c cashews
3/4 c dates (chopped)
1/3 c flaxseed
2/3 c shredded coconut
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 c agave or honey
1/4 c coconut oil
Preferred Toppings (Pictured: matcha, black sesame seeds, cocoa powder, coconut shreds, flaxseed)
- Mix the dry ingredients (oats, cashews, flaxseed, coconut, cinnamon, and nutmeg) together in a food processor or Vitamix.
- Once the dry ingredients have reached a flour consistency, add the wet ingredients (chopped dates, vanilla, honey, and coconut oil). Blend together. The mixture should resemble cookie dough. If the mixture is too dry, add a splash of soy or almond milk.
- Roll into 1 inch balls and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
