This is a perfect snack for before and after physical activities. You can add pretty much anything to make these balls more nutritious. 

  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter (for nut-free options: tahini or any kind of seed butter)
  • 1-2 tbsp raw honey
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds (I like to mix 3 different seeds but you can also choose one)
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed 
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • ¼ cup mini chocolate chips
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut (for coating) 

Use a food processor to puree dates. Add peanut butter and honey and mix some more. Add seeds, chocolate chips, and sea salt and mix well. Form small balls and roll into shredded coconut. Refrigerate over night.
