 Holiday Energy Bites

 

Servings: Makes about 15 

 

Ingredients:

1 cup walnuts
8 dates, pitted
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon peppermint extract (I used 2 drops of  DoTERRA peppermint essential oil)
Pinch of salt 
 

Directions:
1. Put the walnuts in your food processor and pulse until well chopped.
2. Add the dates and pulse again until mixed well. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water to help form a paste.
3. Add cocoa powder, 2/3 cup shredded coconut, vanilla extract, peppermint extract, and salt. Pulse until combined. 
4. Use a cookie dough scoop to grab 1 tablespoon of mixture and then roll into a ball. Place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat until all the mixture is gone. 
5. Prepare two separate bowls (one for finely shredded coconut, and one for crushed candy cane). Alternate rolling balls into coconut and crushed candy cane. 
6. Let set in fridge for about 30 minutes.
