Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Mint Chocolate Superfood Snack Balls


Serves: 18 balls

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp hemp seeds
  • 3 Tbsp raw organic cacao powder
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp coconut palm sugar
  • 1 Tbsp xylitol
  • 1 tsp spirulina (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract

Directions:

Combine cashews, almonds, chia and hemp seeds together in food processor until well ground.

Add remaining ingredients until well combined.

Form balls by shaping mixture in the palm of your hand. Store in fridge to harden.

Makes approximately 18 balls (depending on how much mix you eat along the way!)

Tip: If you live in a cool climate, you may like to melt coconut oil prior to adding to mixture. The best way to do this is using the double boiler method and keep heat low. Place coconut oil in heat-proof bowl into a pot of water. Heat slowly until coconut oil liquifies.
