Chocolate Orange Energy Balls

I used to be OBSESSED with making lil energy balls. My food processor nearly died from the sheer amount of dates I chucked in it. But then I think I got obsessed with some other snack (I go through phases 😂) and forgot all about these lil cheeky balls of datey gooey chocolatey goodness. Have I sold it to you yet?! 🤓⁣

Although I don’t think I’ll ever quite quit the habit of spending a small fortune on ‘healthy’ bars (I’m a marketeers dream I tell ya) I do try to make homemade snacks and have them in the cupboard/fridge/freezer for when the hanger hits.⁣

Chocolate Orange Energy Balls⁣
🟤 6 medjool dates⁣
🟤2 tbsp peanut butter⁣
🟤2 tsp cacao plus extra to roll in⁣
🟤6 tbsp oats⁣
🟤Juice of 1/2 orange⁣
🟤 Pinch of salt⁣
1️⃣ Put the dates and peanut butter in a food processor and pulse until you get a smooth paste (it’ll make a racket but push through the din)⁣
2️⃣ Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse again. The mixture should come together now⁣
3️⃣ Remove the blade from the food processor and then using a dessert spoon take a spoon of mixture and roll it into a ball between your hands⁣
4️⃣ roll each ball in some extra cacao and place in the fridge⁣

Snack away!⁣
