10 medjool dates pitted
1 cup dried apricots
1/4 cup pistachios
1/3 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup shredded coconut (plus a little extra to roll the balls in)
1 tbsp maple syrup
Add all the energy ball ingredients to a food processor and pulse until it forms a sticky dough.
Use your hands to roll 1 tbsp sized balls, then roll each ball into some shredded coconut.
Pop the energy balls in the fridge to chill and set for at least 2 hours. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
The pistachios can be subbed out for any nut, macadamia nuts also work very well.
If your mix is a little too sticky add a tablespoon or two of oats to the mixture.
To make it nut free use sunflower seeds instead of pistachios.
