Chocolate Chia Balls

So I kind of failed with my Meal of the Month plan didn’t I… sorry! But instead of doing that, I thought I would just go back to sharing my favourite recipes every now and then, and this time it is these delicious chocolate energy balls!

The first time I made energy balls was when I found a random recipe online and as much as they were amazing, they weren’t quite what I wanted. So next time I made them, I literally just made it up myself! It was quite spontaneous and I was very unprepared, so I just looked at what I had in the cupboards already and put it all together and thankfully, it made these little balls of goodness!

For me, I love chocolate. If you put a chocolate bar in front of me, it will be gone within minutes, but obviously when I’m trying to eat healthily, chocolate is not what I should be eating! These energy balls are perfect for that chocolate fix, as well as being healthy and nutritious at the same time!

These chocolate chia balls are perfect to give you your chocolate fix, but staying heathy and nutritious!

Ingredients

  • 150g Dates
  • 30g Almonds (ground preferably but not essential)
  • 1 tbsp Cacao Powder
  • 3 tbsp Coconut Oil OR Maple Syrup
  • 2 tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 1 serving Chocolate Protein Powder (optional)

Decoration

  • Desiccated Coconut
  • Cocoa Powder

Method

  1. Put all the ingredients into your blender (I use my Nutribullet for this) and whiz it up!
  2. Once sticky and gooey, roll into little balls of goodness of your chosen size.
  3. OPTIONAL – roll them in desiccated coconut or cocoa powder.
  4. Put in the fridge to set, or eat straight away!

So there we go! These are so quick and easy to make, and I just can’t get enough of them! Also, the amounts I’ve put are a very rough guide because if I’m perfectly honest, I don’t really measure the ingredients – I just go on what seems about right!

I really hope you enjoy these, and please let me know if you tried them and what you thought of them!
