Chocolate Power Balls ( courtesy of Gluten free Vegan Comfort Food)
This recipe is very similar to my goji bars, and ingredients can be substituted with seeds, and dried fruits.
1 cup walnuts
1 cup cashews
1 cup pitted and chopped dates
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon pure vanilla
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 dash nutmeg
1 tablespoon orange juice
1. Place the nuts and dates in a food processor and pulse until ground. Add the rest of the ingredients and whirl until the mixture begins to form a ball.
2. Remove the mixture from the food processor and put into a large bowl. Form into tablespoon-size balls and place on a cookie sheet. Chill in fridge for about an hour until hardened. (They last in the fridge for about a week.)
