This recipe was shared over the holidays by a guru I love Kris Carr. She posted a video from So Vegan and I decided to give these energy balls a go. I am so glad I did!

My husband got me the Cuisinart Smart Stick which made making these a breeze with the food processor attachment.

Here is the recipe. Enjoy!

Ingredients

1 cup cashews
6 dates
8 cherries
4 tsp cocoa powder
1 tsp coconut oil
30g dark chocolate (suitable for vegans)
1/4 cup desiccated Coconut

1. Prepare ingredients by pitting the dates and cherries.

2. Place cashews, dates, cherries, cocoa powder, coconut oil and chocolate in a food processor and blitz until all ingredients have broken down and are combined.

3. Carefully remove the blade from the food processor container and place mix into a fridge for 10 minutes.

4. Remove mix from the fridge and mould into 10 balls.

5. Transfer the desiccated coconut into a small bowl. Place one ball into the bowl at a time and roll around until it is coated in the coconut.

6. Eat immediately or refrigerate until ready to eat.
