Gingerbread Energy Balls

Screen Shot 2017-11-07 at 8.43.02 AM

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup pitted dates (about 12)
  • 1 cup toasted pecans
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 oz. dark chocolate, to drizzle (optional)

Directions:

  1. Roughly chop the pitted dates and add them to a high-powered blender or food processor. Blend until they’re broken down into small bits or a paste
  2. Add the toasted pecans, molasses, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves and pulse until combined. The pecans should be in small bits – be careful not to over-process or the oils will start to separate. If this happens, just dab off the excess oil with a paper towel
  3. Roll into 1-inch balls and place on a cookie sheet
  4. Finely chop the dark chocolate and melt in the microwave. Place the melted chocolate into a zip bag or piping bag, snip the corner and drizzle over the energy balls. Let chocolate harden in the refrigerator
  5. Keep stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator or freezer
