Salted Coconut Chocolate Energy Balls

It's been so long since I created a new energy ball recipe! I had a craving for chocolate, so I created this delicious chocolatey recipe with a hint of coconut and sea salt. So good!

These energy balls are full of fiber, omega-3's, plant protein, healthy fats and vitamins and minerals.

They're a perfect pre- or post-workout snack or even a healthy snack to satisfy your sweet tooth. I ate a couple of these in the afternoons for a sweet treat and energy boost.

I used dairy-free chocolate chips since I'm avoiding dairy right now, but you can use regular mini chocolate chips if you'd like. 

Salted Coconut Chocolate Energy Balls

1 cup old fashioned oats

1/4 cup chia seeds

1/4 cup ground flax seeds

2 scoop vanilla plant protein {the one that I use -->>}

1/4 cup almond butter

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1/4 cup honey

2 tbsp. pure maple syrup

1/4 tsp. sea salt

1/4 cup dairy-free mini chocolate chips

Combine oats, chia seeds, flax seeds, plant protein, cocoa powder, almond butter, melted coconut oil, coconut flakes, honey, maple syrup and sea salt. 

Stir in chocolate chips.

Form into balls. Store in the refrigerator.
