ALMOND JOY ENERGY BITES

almond-joy-energy-bites-12

  • 12 oz. (about 2 cups, loosely-packed) Medjool dates
  • 2 cups almonds
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. almond extract (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

Add dates and remaining ingredients to a food processor. Pulse a few times to combine, then use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl. Blend the mixture for about 3 minutes, or until the mixture has moved past the crumbly stage and begins to clump and stick to the sides of the food processor.

Use a spoon or small cookie scoop to measure out a tablespoon of dough (or your desired size) and roll it into a ball. If desired, roll the ball in a bowl of coconut flakes. Or just set it aside to eat as-is. Repeat with the remaining dough. (Alternately, you can flatten the dough into the bottom of an 8×8-inch parchment-lined baking dish, then cut it into bars.)

Store the energy bites in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
