10-Minute No Cook Chocolate-Cranberry Energy Balls

AuthorTrina

easy no cook chocolate cranberry energy balls

 0.50 cup natural almond butter
 0.50 cup Medjool dates, pitted
 0.33 cup shredded coconut
 0.25 cup cranberries, dried
 0.25 cup pecans, chopped
 3 tbsp dark chocolate mini-chips (I used the Enjoy Life brand)
 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
 0.25 tsp salt
 Plus...extra shredded coconut to roll the balls in – about 2-3 tablespoons

1

Add almond butter and pitted dates to a high-speed blender or food processor. Blend until mixture has a "crumbly -doughy" kind of consistency.

2

Next scoop the blended mixture into a small bowl and add in everything else.

3

Mix a little bit by hand to combine everything, then roll into small, bite-size balls.

4

Finish each with a roll through a plate with 2-3 tablespoons of shredded coconut.

  • These will keep for about 2 weeks refrigerated in a sealed container or small plastic bag. Can also be frozen for about 4 months, then thawed and enjoyed.
  • If your mixture seems too wet to roll into a good ball, just add a little more shredded coconut and roll again. If the mixture feels a little dry, just add a little coconut oil and re-roll.
