They store well, so they are ideal for a quick snacks and they are so delicious that it’s hard to stop at two.
I have to make a double batch to enjoy throughout the week.

•16 dried cherries (1 ounce)

Coconut to roll some of the finished ones in for a variety.
These chocolate chip treats are so yummy and packed full of goodness I call them Energy balls.
They are so delicious that it’s nearly impossible to stop at one and even difficult to stop at two.
I suggest you make a double batch to enjoy throughout the week.
1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Combine the oats, dates, almonds, chocolate chips, cherries, vanilla, and salt in a food processor. Pulse until coarsely chopped and the mixture starts to bind. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water if needed, to help bind.
3. For each energy ball, scoop 1 tablespoon of the mixture, gently roll it into a ball, and place on the prepared baking sheet. Be careful not to compact your balls.
4. Bake for 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to let cool.
