Benefits

Made with medjool dates, cashews, quinoa flakes, and cacao, these bites are full of natural goodness. They’re also gluten-free, dairy-free and totally vegan-friendly. Plum powder has soluble fiber, sorbitol, and isatin, which is known for being cardio-protective, helpful in reducing bad cholesterol. While a moderate source of vitamins, it is a good source of antioxidants and helps promote a healthy digestive system as well as good for red blood cell formation. Plum is also a natural source of electrolytes.

Ingredients

  • 1 packed cup medjool dates (i.e. 11-12 dates)
  • 1  1/2 cups raw, unsalted cashews
  • 1/2 cup quinoa flakes
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 5 teaspoons plum powder
  • 2-3 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 3/4 cup desiccated coconut

Preparation & Cooking Instructions

  1. Take out the pits from the dates. Place the dates then into a food processor with the cashews. Process until cashews and dates are broken up and resemble a sticky crumb.
  2. Add the cocoa powder, quinoa flakes, plum powder, and ginger. Proceed to process until the mixture creates a sticky dough. The end result may be a large ball in the processor.
  3. Using a teaspoon, scoop out the doughy mixture and begin rolling it into a ball. To coat the ball, roll it over the desiccated coconut. Repeat the method until all dough is used.
  4. Place the energy balls on a tray then put them into the fridge until they become more firm.
