These Chocolate Energy Balls are a surprisingly decadent-tasting healthy snack. An easy recipe packed with plant based protein and healthy fats, these bite-sized chocolates are low in sugar, gluten free, dairy free, vegan, and grain free.
1 cup gluten free almond flour (see notes)
heaping 1/3 cup O.W.Y.N. Dark Chocolate protein powder
3 T cocoa powder
1/8 tsp sea salt, or to taste
1 T honey, agave, or real maple syrup (we use local, raw honey - use one of the other options for vegan)
2-3 T milk of choice (we used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
2 T mini or regular vegan chocolate chips, optional (we used Enjoy Life Foods)
Many almond flours are not gluten free as they are processed on the same equipment as wheat. Use an almond flour that has the certified gluten free seal.
