Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw seeds or nuts of choice (I used sunflower and pumpkin seeds)
  • 1/4 cup cacao or cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup medjool dates, pitted and chopped
  • 1-3 tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs or chocolate chips
  • cacao powder or unsweetened shredded coconut, optional for coating

Method

  1. Place seeds/nuts in a food processor, and process until finely ground. Pulse in cacao, vanilla, and salt.
  2. Add in the chopped dates and water, 1 tablespoon at a time until the dough comes together nicely. Process until all ingredients are distributed evenly (you may need to stop a few times and scrape down the sides and separate the dough if it forms a ball).
  3. Pulse in the cacao nibs or chips.
  4. Roll pieces of the dough into small, tablespoon-sized balls. You may roll them in the cacao powder, shredded coconut, or any other toppings of choice.
  5. Place your energy bites in a container in the refrigerator or freezer for at least 30 minutes, then serve!
