Energy balls are popping up everywhere. They are the perfect size to take on the go, taste great, and are packed with lots of nutrients. I have even seen energy balls sold individually at some health food stores, but they can get pricey if you want to buy many for the week.
Anyone that knows me, knows that I am a dessert-loving dietitian, so I always need to have something sweet to satisfy my cravings. These coconut date balls not only satisfy my sweet tooth but are good for me too! The best part about these coconut date balls is that they are quick and easy to make. I usually make these on Sunday during my #mealprep to last me throughout the week.
Here's a quick video to show you exactly how to make them:
These date balls are:
4 Ingredient Date Balls
Makes: 25 1-inch balls
2 cups dates, pitted
1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut (for rolling)
1. In a food processor, chop dates until coarsely chopped.
2. Add oats and almonds and pulse to chop until mixture comes together and can no longer see separate date pieces.
3. Using damp hands, roll mixture into 1-inch balls and roll in shredded coconut.
