Mint Chocolate Energy Balls
Mint chocolate energy balls are filled with easy, wholesome ingredients that you won't feel guilty about. Aka the perfect healthy snack!
Servings: 14 servings
- 1 cup raw cashews
- 10 pitted Medjool Dates
- ¼ cup cacao powder
- 2 tablespoons ground flaxseeds
- 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
- pinch of sea salt
Add all of the ingredients to a food processor, and process on high until the mixture starts to stick together.
Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop a ball and roll it in between your hands. Then place it on a plate. Continue this process until you've used up all the dough.
- It's best to use fresh dates that are nice and moist. If your dates are a bit dried out, you can either soak them in warm water for 10 minutes, or add 1 to 2 teaspoons of water to the food processor. If you have problems with the energy balls not sticking together, you likely need to add a little bit of water and then blend some more.
- When it comes to peppermint extract, this is my favorite! I think it has the most "real" peppermint flavor.
