Valentine’s Day Dates

Valentine’s Day is coming up, which means it’s occasion for a date!

Dates are the core of my raw energy balls. What I love about these raw energy balls is that they are antioxidant powerhouses, packed with omegas, and are addictively delicious. The caramel-like flavour of the dates may fool your tastebuds into thinking that these are sweet treats, but – believe me – your body will thank you. I love how the chia seeds and hemp hearts provide texture while the dark cocoa’s alkalinity is a perfect foil for the natural sweetness of the dates. Good and good-for-you!

PS. They are vegan and gluten-free, too!

Raw Energy Balls (6 pieces)

1/2 cup fresh Medjool dates, pitted (approximately 4 dates)

1 tablespoon natural crunchy peanut butter

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 tablespoon hemp hearts

100% extra brute cocoa powder or crushed roasted almonds

  1. Soak dates in hot water for 10 minutes. Drain well.
  2. In a food processor, process dates, peanut butter, chia seeds, and hemp hearts until combined.
  3. Carefully mould between your hands into 1-inch balls.
  4. Roll balls in cocoa powder or crushed almonds and arrange them on a sheet lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from refrigerator and serve. Store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
  6. Enjoy!
