2/3 cup cocoa powder
1¼ cup almonds, ground
3/4 cup Mid Eastern or Medjool fresh dried dates, pitted
2 Tbsp (30 mL) Maison Orphée Organic Coconut Oil
¼ tsp sea salt
Hemp seeds to sprinkle balls
Process cocoa powder and almonds. Add dates, coconut oil and sea salt; puree until mixture sticks together. If needed add a little more coconut oil or dates to adjust texture to desired stickiness and the level of sweetness.
Roll into 1 inch balls then roll balls in hemp seeds. Chill for a minimum of one hour. Store in fridge or freezer for up to 2 – 3 weeks… if they last that long!
Note: The med chain saturated fatty acid of the coconut oil is fabulous for athletes for it provides an easily digested and instantly accessed source of energy.
