Chocolate Energy Ball

Sometimes I need a quick fix of energy, especially when I'm teaching lots of yoga. I've always loved how simple yet delicious these raw chocolate energy balls are. If you need a power surge, then try these out:

- 1 cup walnuts

- 1/2 cup of slivered almonds

- 8 medjool dates

- 1/4 cup cacao powder

- 1/2 tea spoon of vanilla bean powder

- Pinch of sea salt

- 1/4 cup of shredded coconut

Blend the walnuts and almonds in a food processor until fine. Then add all of the other ingredients. Roll the mixture into small truffle size balls. Roll each one in shredded coconut. Refrigerate to keep them firm.

Easy. Enjoy!
