Chocolate Coconut Power Balls

Chocolate Coconut Power BallsThe mid-morning snack attack! We’ve all been there, and this morning I was working outside at my home office when I suddenly got a massive craving for something chocolatey and coconutty and sweet. Knowing I had to be smart about what I would be putting into my body, and really wanting my treat to be delicious yet healthy, I created these these tasty little DELICIOUS treats with the ingredients I had at home.

Behold the Chocolate Coconut Power Balls! 

Yield: 10 pieces       Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (plus an extra 3/4 cup to coat balls with)

  • 7 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/4 tsp of sea salt
  • 2 TBSP of cocoa powder
  • 1 Tsp of pure vanilla extract

Directions:

  • Place all ingredients into food processor.

  • Roll dough into little tim-bit sized balls and place aside on a plate or sheet of wax paper.
