These little guys pack a punch, and its as easy as throwing things into a food processor, and then rolling them into a ball. They are basically raw, except the pistachios I used are roasted…but use sesame seeds or coconut on the outside instead and you have yourself a healthy raw snack. This is another one that is really versatile. I think next time I’ll use almond butter and walnuts, with sesame seed on the outside.
There’s no added sugar in these, being naturally sweetened by the dates. They are also filled with healthy fats, lean proteins, and healthy carbohydrates for energy. Plus pistachios are natural mood boosters, so eat and enjoy!
Chocolate Pistachio Snack Balls
- 1 cup almond flour
- 15 medjool dates, pitted
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp raw cacao
- 1/3 cup raw cashews
- 1/3 cup shelled pistachios,
For the outside:
- ground up shelled pistachios
Process everything in a food processor until it becomes a thick paste. Roll them into palm sized balls and then roll them in the extra pistachios to coat them. Place them in the freezer to set for a half hour. Enjoy!
These stay good for a up to a week in the fridge, and up to two in the freezer.
