Ingredients
  • ½ cup cashews
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • (Optional) 2 tbsp maca powder
  • 2 tbsp creamy almond butter
  • 8 medjool dates (about 1 ¼ cups)
  • 3 tbsp water
  • ¾ cup dark chocolate
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
Instructions
  1. To a food processor, add cashews, oats, almond flour, cocoa powder, and maca powder. Blitz until it resembles a coarse flour texture. Add almond butter, dates and water. Process until mixture comes together and can be easily formed into a ball. Use a small cookie scoop to portion out dough. Roll into a smooth ball and transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet.

  2. In a small bowl, microwave chocolate and coconut oil in 30 sec intervals until melted. Dip each ball into the melted chocolate and roll around to coat using a fork. Scoop up the ball with a fork and gently shake off any excess, transfer to the baking sheet.

  3. Transfer to the freezer for 10 min. to allow chocolate to set. Store energy bites in an airtight container in the freezer.
