Cacao Power Balls Recipe
A deliciously rich chocolate protein power ball perfect for a pre- and post-workout for energy and refueling.
Ingredients
1 cup raw cashews, unsalted
1/3 cup agave nectar (or liquid sweetener to taste)
1/2 cup almond butter, unsweetened

1/4 cup sunflower seed butter
3/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/2-3/4 cup coconut oil (Soft, but not melted, the more oil there is and the hotter it gets, the more difficult it will be to form a ball))
1/4 cup hemp hearts, or sunflower seeds
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2 Tbsp Cacao nibs (sweetened)

Optional: Maca, protein powder, or any powder supplement
Instructions
Process the cashews on high in a food processor for 20-30 seconds until they are finely ground
Add in all the remaining ingredients into the container and pulse until a dough/batter has formed.
Different products can produce different results, so if the mixture is crumbly, add more butter, if too soft, refrigerate slightly.
Transfer batter to another bowl (taste the batter to make sure sweet enough for your liking)
Measure out approximately 1-2 Tbsp size of the batter and roll into a ball that is compact. Roll in coconut shreds.  Store in either the fridge or freezer
