Date & Cocoa Protein Balls

1 cup oats
1 cup Medjool Dates
1/2 cup Flax Seeds or Chia Seeds
1/2 cup All natural Peanut butter (chunky)
2 tablespoons dark chocolate cocoa powder or 2 tablespoons cocoa nibs
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 cup Shredded Coconut


Blend Dates and Flax seeds in a food processor. Add mixture in with the rest of the ingredients.Chill in refrigerator. Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like, I usually make 10-12 balls. Store in an airtight container and keep in the fridge for up to 1 week…if they last that long
