2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup almond butter
1/2 cup almonds
2 tablespoons cacao
8 medjool dates, pitted
1 teaspoon vanilla
Juice & finely grated zest of medium orange
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Cocoa powder for rolling
Using a food processor, add the oats and almonds, and blend until you have a breadcrumb-like texture
Add the cocoa, orange zest and salt and pulse a few times to mix.
Add the almond butter and pulse. Add the dates along with a splash of the orange juice, and blend. You want the mixture to begin to clump together.
If it’s too dry and keeps it’s crumb-like texture, keep adding more orange juice, a little at a time, until you have a mixture that holds together when you pinch it.
Roll into the mixture into balls and sprinkle with cocoa powder. Store in the fridge until serving.
