Raw Vegan Everything-But-The-Kitchen-Sink Energy Balls

A LOT has been happening the past few weeks. I have finally got my business up and running. Whats that you say? Business? Yes I have started a new business. Check it out at www.maikanafoods.com. Its a neat little website where you can order my delicious and healthy creations and then have them delivered right to your door! My goal is making healthy yummy food as convenient as can be. Thus far this first week is going grand! Not to brag but Maikana has been getting excellent reviews. I could NOT be happier about it! Yay!! With this new business I have been working on a lot of new dressings and healthy bites and snacks. One of the little treats I've been included as a "thank you" to our clients are these vegan, raw, healthy, energy balls- if you will. I could not think up a name for something that I threw pretty much every healthy item in my pantry into...but hey, they taste good and are a nice, actually healthy, sweet treat. Can't beat that. Plus you just throw all the ingredients into a food processor and you're done. Super easy!


Raw Vegan Everything-But-The-Kitchen-Sink Energy Balls

Pantry:
1 cup raw walnuts
18-20 medjool dates, pitted
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/8 cup matcha powder
1/8 cup hemp seeds
1/4 cup shredded coconut (extra cup if you want to roll the balls in them afterward they are done)
1/4 cup oats
1/8 cup chia seeds
2 tbs milled flaxseed
1/8 coconut oil, room temp (not melted) is fine
Pinch of salt

Tools:
Food processor
Medium melon baller (optional)

Take all the ingredients and put them into your food processor. Blend until a paste or almost dough forms. Remove from the food processor and using either a melon baller or your hands, eyeball a 1 inch ball and roll in your hands until round. They might be a little oily from the coconut oil but that's ok. After you have rolled the paste into balls, you can now roll them in the extra shredded coconut or topping of your choice or nothing at all. At least point refrigerate for at least an hour to firm up. Keep them refrigerated and grab them as a sweet energy treat whenever you are craving one. They will keep for up to a week in the fridge or 2 months in the freezer. Enjoy them! xo
