Ingredients:  
1 cup walnuts, or nuts of choice
1 1/3 cup pitted dates
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
3-4 tbsp cocoa or cacao powder
A pinch or 2 of salt
optional mini chocolate chips
optional add-ins, such as chia seeds or shredded coconut (basically anything you want!)

Directions:
Directions:

Blend all ingredients in a food processor (or halve the recipe and use a single serve blender). When doing a full recipe, Iíve found that a food processor works much better than a blender because everything processes more evenly and the results are not a sticky mess. Roll into balls and roll in shredded unsweetened coconut (could use more nuts, powdered sugar or another replacement here if you want!)

I layer these in a container or ziplock and keep them in the freezer. I take 2 out to have with a coffee; great little breakfast treat!

Personal Notes:
