Midnight Energy Balls are a healthy and delicious snack for anytime of day. Made with nut butter, coconut flakes and cacao powder for a chocolatey taste. Enjoy it for breakfast, or a post/pre workout snack.
These little midnight balls finally made a spot on the blog. They first appeared on IG and so many of you asked for the full recipe, so here you have it - chocolatey energy balls, low in sugar and high in healthy fats. Kind of the dream snack and a serious contender for 'best dessert' when you're craving something a little sweet, but don't want to over due it. These guys are definitely what I turn to for a a touch of sweetness to end the night.
Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 5 minutes
Ingredients for the midnight balls:
2/3 cups toasted coconut flakes (untoasted works great too)
2/3 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup almond butter (or any)
2-3 tablespoons raw cacao powder
3 tablespoons coconut oil
3 tablespoons nut milk
1/3 cup medjool dates, pitted
1 teaspoon vanilla powder or extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of salt
Blend in a food processor until smooth and roll into small balls and enjoy! I like to store mine in the fridge/freezer for a preworkout snack and midnight (more like 9pm) treat.
