Toasted Coconut, Almond, & Chia Energy Balls RECIPE (Gluten-Free & Vegan)
Time to get pumped up about this energy ball recipe that I created using Betsy's Best Toasted Coconut Cashew Butter. You can use the nut butter of your choosing but this particular one by Betsy's Best will give you maximum flavor.
This recipe included toasted coconut, toasted almonds, and chia seeds, along with gluten-free oats.
Mini chocolate chips OPTIONAL (I recommend Enjoy Life Foods).
Gather all of your ingredients for this recipe.
Warm 1 tablespoon of coconut and allow it to melt. Once melted, toast the coconut flakes and the slivered almonds until fragrant and golden. Use a medium heat setting.
Place the oats, nut butter, toasted coconut, toasted almonds, maple syrup, and chia seeds into a food processer.
Use the high setting to incoroporate all of the ingredients.
They will ball up in the food processer.
Once ingredients have been processed, remove the mixture and place it in a mixing bowl.
If you want to add some mini chocolate chips to your energy balls you can do that at this point. (OPTIONAL)
Using clean hands, you can take enough mixture to make a 1-inch energy ball and roll it together with your hands until smooth.
You should have appoximately 14 energy balls now. Refrigerate to maintain freshness.
You will need:
- Food Processor
- Mixing Bowl
- Soft Spatula
SWAP! Feel free to swap out the maple syrup for some raw honey. It won't be vegan with the honey but it will be sweet and tasty!
