Energy bunnies

Makes about 2 dozen 1” balls

Hands on time – 15 minutes

 

Ingredients:

2 cups of dates

2 cups almonds

½ cup coconut chips

¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 Tablespoon coconut or almond milk (more if needed)

½ Tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ teaspoon cinnamon

1/3 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt

Equipment required:

Food processor, a bowl, baking tray, parchment paper.

 

Instructions:

1. Combine everything in a food processor and pulse until desired consistency. Some people prefer tasting little chunks of nuts.

2. Place mixture in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes so it would be easier to roll.

3. Roll out the balls, decorate “with ears”.
