I love balls!

Who loves balls? Everyone in my house loves them......especially CHOCOLATE BALLS!

That is what we call them. Some people call them power balls, some people call them protein balls, some people call them energy balls. Regardless of what you call them, they are awesome!

Super easy to make, super good. Here is how to do it.

1C Almonds
1C pitted dates
2T cocoa powder
2T maca powder
melted coconut oil

Throw the almonds in a great blender or food processor. Once they are finely chopped add the dates until they are finely chopped and the mixture is sticky.  Next add the cocoa and maca and mix until blended.

Great oil and the best deal on this is at Costco.
Check to see how well the mixture holds together, if needed start adding coconut oil 1/2 t at a time. Once it can hold together... you're done. Form into balls and pop into the freezer. We eat them straight out of the freezer and they are SUPER GOOD!!!

What if you have extra coconut oil....don't fret, just rub it into the ends of your hair for a bonus deep conditioning treatment. ;-)

Chocolate Balls!

This recipe makes about 25 if no 2 year olds get their hands on them before freezing!
