BLUEBERRY PECAN ENERGY BALLS

Dried blueberries and pecans team up with cacao nibs for a chocolaty treat any time of day. The cacao is a bit more bitter than chocolate, but the maple syrup helps tame it. Almond butter and chia seeds provide protein to make these bites substantial snacks to fuel your body.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ½ cups dried blueberries

  • 1 ½ cups pecans

  • 6 tablespoons cocoa nibs

  • 6 tablespoons almond butter

  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds

  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

  • Pinch of salt


METHOD

  1. Combine blueberries, pecans, cacao nibs, almond butter, chia seeds, maple syrup and salt in a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped, 10 to 20 times, then process for about 1 minute, scraping down the sides as necessary, until the mixture is crumbly but can be pressed to form a cohesive ball.

  2. With wet hands (to prevent the mixture from sticking to them), squeeze about 1 tablespoon of the mixture tightly between your hands and roll into a ball. Place in a storage container. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
