Cocoa Coconut Energy Balls

Let's face it, it's Friday, and we deserve a treat! Why not reward 
yourself with some Coconut Covered Chocolate Energy Balls Orbs!

I need to credit Eden's Eats for the inspiration 
behind these, thanks to her recipe for "Amazeballs"

Energy Orbs
adapted from Eden Eats

1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup wild honey
1/3 cup coconut flakes (for topping)

Step 1: Scoop almond butter into a bowl

Step 2: Add oats and a pinch of sea salt (optional)

Step 3:  Add cocoa powder, cinnamon, and vanilla

Step 4: Add honey/sweetener and raisins

Step 5: Blend well and roll 1-2 Tbsp of mixture into "balls"

Step 6: Sprinkle shredded coconut in a bowl and place ball inside 

Step 7: Roll ball around in coconut, gently pressing the flakes in to stick

You can easily substitute ingredients by switching nut butters or trying seed butters
using quinoa flakes instead of oats, or opting to make them "naked" without coconut!

Each batch makes approximately 8-10 energy balls

I made these today and replaced the raisins with dates and froze them for a firmer cookie. Wow, they're GOOD
