I love energy balls because they are filling and sweet – the perfect snack for after surfing in the rain, or taking with you on a bike ride or hike. These tasty energy balls are super easy to make, provided you have a food processor.

Put the following ingredients into the food processor – all at once is fine.

1 cup of dates (if using dried dates like me, soak them in warm water for 10-20 minutes first. Drain, then place in the food processor.)
2 cups of almonds
1 tbsp ginger peeled and chopped
2 tbsp molasses
1 tsp all-spice
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp rock salt

Blend on high until the whole mixture becomes one mass.

Using your hands, roll the mixture into 1 inch diameter balls. It makes 16+ depending on the size.

Mix together some shredded coconut and hemp hearts to make about 1/4 cup. Coat the balls by rolling them in the mixture.

Chill in the fridge, then enjoy!
