Units:

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups pitted medjool dates
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup high quality cocoa powder (I recommend Rodelle)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, for rolling

Instructions

    1. In a food processor or high powered blender, puree the dates, tahini, cocoa powder, and vanilla extract. Scrape down the sides of the processor a few times to make sure everything gets combined!
    2. Remove from food processor and roll into 1-inch balls. You might have to squeeze them in your hands a few times to get them as condensed as possible, then roll them between your palms. 
    3. Roll the balls in about 1 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks!

Notes

If you’re looking to get in a little more protein, I’d suggest adding 1/3 cup of protein powder to this recipe.
