Raw Vegan Chocolate Coconut Energy Balls

These are incredible!  I found the recipe at Crunchy Living 100% Vegan @

The Recipe

The Ingredients
1/4 cup cold pressed coconut oil, room temperature
1/4 cup organic maple syrup
1/3 cup organic cacao or pure cocoa powder
pinch of sea salt
1 cup raw pecans or walnuts, soaked and dehydrated
2/3 cup organic shredded unsweetened coconut

I have never made anything like these before and I'm totally impressed.  I will most certainly be eating one of these at 3:00pm as a sweet treat pick me up during the work day.  I also could see eating one mid run during a long run.  I'm always craving something at about 5-6 miles in and I think this would really do the trick!

The coconut oil and organic maple syrup are a little pricey, but they will go a long way because you only need 1/4 cup for each batch.  So it's an upfront cost, but I say it's worth it!

Have you ever made any kind of raw ball?  Tell me what you think!
