Time: 20 minutes (10 minutes hands on time)
Makes: 20 balls
1 cup coconut flour
1/3 cup + 1 Tbsp cacao powder
1 cup Medjool dates, pitted (about 13-14)
3/4 cup plant-based milk like Ripple (or almond milk works well too if you don't need these to be nut free)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup mini dairy-free mini chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life Foods)
1.) Soak pitted Medjool Dates in hot water for 3-5 minutes; drain.
2.) Process all ingredients except the mini chocolate chips in a food processor until well incorporated then let chill for 5 minutes*.
3.) Spread mini chocolate chips on a plate. Using your hands, roll mixture into 1 inch size balls then roll in the mini chocolate chips** and place on parchment paper.
4.) Store in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy often!
*If mixture seems too wet, add 1-2 more Tbsp of coconut flour. If mixture seems too dry and crumbly, add a little more dairy-free milk about 1 Tbsp at a time until desired consistency is achieved.
**If chips aren't sticking, gently press them into the balls and they will stay!
