Raw Chocolate Protein Balls

Ingredients

1 cup raw cashews

1/3 cup raw almonds

1/2 cup raw walnuts

1/3 cup raw sunflower seeds

2 tablespoons raw flax seed

8- 1 oz. coconut date rolls or 8 oz. of any type of date, chopped small

3 tablespoons Cocoa powder

1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

1.  Place all of the nuts and seeds in a food processor or powerful blender and finely chop all of the ingredients.  To help grind the flax seed enough, you can always grind this first in a coffee grinder.

2.  Add the chopped coconut date rolls (image below), cocoa and vanilla to the nut and seed mixture.  Process all ingredients together until everything is ground and a tough yet soft dough is created.

3.  Form the dough into bite-sized balls (kids have a lot of fun with this step).  Keep balls in refrigerator or freezer for a quick and easy snack!

Makes approx. 21-24 balls
