1/2 cuprolled oats
Place 1/2 cup dates, 1/3 cup dried cranberries, 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup almond butter, 1 Tbsp cocoa powder, and 1 Tbsp chia seeds in a food processor and pulse together until a chunky dough forms. If the mixture is too wet, add more oats. If it's too dry, add more almond butter.
Pinch off approximately 1 Tablespoon of the mixture and roll it into a ball.
Roll your energy ball into finely chopped pecans and unsweetened coconut.
Melt dark chocolate (~1 cup dark chocolate chips mixed with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil) gently over medium heat. Drizzle melted chocolate onto your energy balls.
Place the energy balls in the freezer to harden for around 30 minutes.
Place balls on parchment paper after rolling to easily drizzle the chocolate on. Let them harden before eating for the best texture. These balls can be enjoyed right out of the freezer or fridge. Store them in fridge or freezer for best results.
