Choco-conut Fat Balls

These are SO yummy and make me feel SO good when I eat them! I have a couple for breakfast along with my tea or decaf coffee and they make me feel so balanced and energized. The oil in them helps keep my lips soft too! 

This recipe is inspired by Lee From America's (Instagram: @leefromamerica) Coconut Fat Balls, but I added a few things and switched it up a bit!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Coconut flakes (unsweetened)
  • 1/2 c Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1/4 c Coconut butter, softened
  • 1 c slivered Almonds
  • 1/2 c Walnuts
  • 1/2 c Pecans
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa Nibs
  • 3 pitted Dates
  • 3 tsp Ashwagandha Powder
  • 3 tbsp Maca Powder
  • 6 scoops of Aloha's Chocolate Protein Powder
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 c Almond Milk 

Process all of these ingredients in a food processor until a slightly wet dough forms. The consistency should be like that of chocolate chip cookie dough batter without the chips - everything should grind together and blend up nicely, including all of the nuts. If your processor gets stick mixing, add a bit more liquid in, a tbsp or two at a time. You don't want the dough to be too wet.

Using a cookie scoop, scoop individual balls of the dough out onto a cookie sheet and roll each one nicely with your hands. Then pop the sheet of balls into the freezer until they're fully chilled. Store them in the freezer in a glass container with the lid on tight, and let them thaw for about 5 minutes before you eat them. 

Feel free to mix up the ingredients and try your own! I plan on making a different kind next week once these have been eaten! :) I love adding the Ashwagandha and Maca to balance my hormones, and the cinnamon gives them a warming spicy taste which I love.

Happy eating!
