Chocolate Coconut Energy Balls

Hi Friends,

I fell in love with dates a couple years ago and they haven’t left my side since! Dates are soft, sweet and super nutritious. I needed a quick NUT FREE treat so I dipped a date into Sunbutter and added a dark chocolate chip in the middle. This quickly became an obsession…The only difficult thing was packing these as a to go snack because they were so messy. That is when I decided to blend everything together and BAM, these date balls came to life. Please Enjoy!
