These fibre and protein filled, Nut Free Coconut Date Energy Balls are dairy, gluten and refined sugar free since they're sweetened with dates.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup pitted dates, soaked and drained if dry
  • 1½ tbsp coconut butter, softened in the microwave
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • more coconut, ground flax, chia seeds and hemp seeds for rolling
Instructions
  1. Pulse dates in food processor until soft and broken down
  2. Add coconut butter, rolled oats and shredded coconut and process until everything comes together and forms a ball
  3. Use your hands to form the dough into smaller balls. I made about 8, but any size is fine
  4. Roll balls in desired toppings and store in an air tight container in the refrigerator or freezer, or eat right away
  5. If storing in freezer, allow 5 minutes to defrost a little before eating
