Ever get in that mid day slump?
Yeahh, me too.
Usually by 2 pm you can find me by the nearest coffee maker brewing my 2nd or 3rd cup of coffee. Not my best habit, I know.
But lately I’ve been really into making a quick snack and enjoying it with my afternoon cup of coffee.
This week I came up with THESE and I think it might be the best thing I’ve ever done.
ALMOND JOY ENERGY BALLS!
Chocolate, almonds, AND coconut.

- 1/2 tsp pink salt
- 2 tbsp ground flax seed
- 3 tbsp 100% cacao

How to make…
Step 1: In a food processor add the dates and almonds until finely chopped.
Step 2: Add in the remaining ingredients except the shredded coconut and blend until they’re completely combined.

Step 4: Roll mixture into balls about 1 inch by 1 inch.
