These Chocolate Energy Balls are super easy to make and dipping them in chocolate gives it a crunchy texture on the outside and chewy on the inside, a real guilt-free treat!
1/2 cup almond butter
3 tbsp maple syrup
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
lukewarm water, as needed
1 cup old-fashioned oats (raw)
3/4 cup unsweetened toasted coconut
1/2 cup almond flour
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a mixing bowl, combine the almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla and cocoa powder. If the mixture seems too thick, add a little lukewarm water to dilute.
Add the oats, coconut, almond flour, stir until well coated. At this point, if the mixture still does not stick well, add up to 2 teaspoons of water as needed.
Transfer the mixture to the refrigerator or freezer and refrigerate until almost set and easier to handle.
Remove from refrigerator and shape into 1-inch balls.
Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave (30 seconds, remove, mix and another 30 seconds)
Dip the energy balls in the melted chocolate to coat them well. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Put in the fridge for 15 minutes,
Keep in an airtight container in the fridge up to a 1 week
