Chocolate Nut Balls
1 cup almonds (could also use almonds
1 cup pitted dates
3 TBSP cocoa powder
1-2 TBSP water
1-2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
½ cup chocolate chips (optional)
Blend almonds to a fine powder, add dates and cocoa powder (and cinnamon and chocolate chips if using). You might need add a little water for dough to form, add very gradually, you don’t want it to be too moist. When perfect dough like consistency is reached, roll into balls. Feel free to roll these bad boys in cocoa powder, finely shredded coconut, or whatever you think would be yummy! Do you prefer homemade protein balls/bars or store bought?? If you like store bought which ones do you like to buy??
PS Don't let the semi-weird looking ball picture fool you, these are delicious!!
