These Chocolate Energy Balls are chewy with a rich cacao flavor. These vegan, gluten-free balls are made without sugar. The chocolate balls turned out very tender. They just melt in your mouth.
I recently made Oatmeal Energy Balls. These two recipes seem similar. But they have different textures. Oatmeal balls have a coarser texture due to the watermelon seeds. By the way, fried watermelon seeds give a magical aroma to the dessert.
Chocolate balls are a very tasty and nutritious dessert. This dessert will not leave you indifferent.
Ingredients Vegan Balls
To make Chocolate Energy Balls you need 5 ingredients. These are rolled oats, almond flour, bananas, cacao powder and refined coconut oil. Before preparing rolled oats, grind them in a blender or coffee grinder until they become flour. Coconut oil can be replaced with any vegetable oil. You can use dates instead of bananas.
You can use the recipe for chocolate balls as a basis. By changing several components you will get a new dessert. For example, instead of cocoa, add raisins or dried cranberries. I really like dried cranberries. In addition to being healthy, cranberries are also very tasty. It adds a pleasant sourness to the dessert. In general, the variety of dessert depends on your imagination.
How to Make Chocolate Energy Balls
The process of making chocolate balls is very simple and quick. First, mix the crushed rolled oats, almond flour and cacao powder in a bowl. Next, use a blender or just a fork to chop the peeled bananas. Add banana puree to dry ingredients. Send refined coconut oil there too.
Stir until all the ingredients come together. Then form small balls. Adjust the size of the balls yourself. I got 17 pieces.
Store the chocolate balls in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for 3 days. For longer storage, place in the freezer.
