We all experience it – the need for a boost in energy. Coffee definitely comes in hand, but what if there’s a way to incorporate that boost in caffeine with a healthy, bite-sized energy ball? It’s coffee and a snack!

We whipped these up in just a few minutes and found them to be shockingly delicious. The added crunch from the ground coffee/espresso beans was magical.

Seriously the perfect little ball of energy. 

These take no time to make, and are certainly worth having on hand in the fridge exactly when you need that boost!

Servings: 12-18

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 3 tbsp espresso beans (coffee beans)
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates
  • 1/4 cup dark dairy-free chocolate chips

Equipment

  • Food processor

Method

  • In a food processor, add raw cashews and espresso beans and pulse until they're chopped finely.
  • Next, add in your pitted dates and almond extract and process until it begins to ball together.
  • Remove from food processor and add in dark (dairy free) chocolate chips and mix in with your hands.
  • Begin rolling the dough in your hands to shape into balls, and store in an airtight container in a fridge to enjoy when you please!
