Raw Mint Chocolate Chunk Energy Balls

Chocolate and mint is one of my favorite combinations, so these little energy balls are flavored with peppermint extract, cocoa and chunks of good quality dark chocolate in addition to the healthy medley of nuts, nut butter, seeds and maple syrup. They're so good that there was never any chance of them lasting for the two weeks that they could keep.

Healthy raw homemade nut and seed energy treats with the delicious flavor combination of chocolate and mint


Ingredients:
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1/3 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • 1/3 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup or dark raw honey
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate, broken into small pieces (or use chocolate chips)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon coconut flour or rice flour (if needed)
Instructions:
  • In a food processor, combine the almonds, cashews and pepitas and process until roughly chopped and broken down, but not ground into a fine meal. Transfer to a large bowl.
  • Stir in the hemp, flax and chia seeds and cocoa. Now add the maple syrup or honey, peanut butter, chocolate chunks, coconut oil and peppermint extract. Stir well to combine until you have a fairly moist but shapeable mixture. If too moist, stir in a bit of coconut or rice flour and let sit for a few minutes. Conversely, if the mixture is too dry, stir in a bit more peanut butter or sweetener.
  • Shape the mixture into small 1-inch balls and transfer to a plate. Refrigerate for an hour or so to firm up. These keep well in the refrigerator in a well-sealed container for at least two weeks, or freeze if desired.
Makes 24 1-inch balls
