Yoga Fuel Chocolate Balls

Happy new week!

I've started my Kundalini yoga teacher training and I'm so excited! It's very intense but in a good way. There's so much to learn which at times feels a bit overwhelming but at the same time completely life-changing. I've started to do early morning sadhana (yoga & meditation) before work and I can already feel a difference in how I feel. I thought that I would be very tired from the super early mornings but it's actually the opposite and I feel more energetic than usual. Except for in the evenings, when I can barely keep my eyes open when I'm trying to read in bed :)

Anyway, over to my (sort of) favourite yoga fuel, chocolate! I already have several recipes for energy balls here on the blog but these are just too good not to share. I love to have these chocolate balls on hand for when I need a quick little snack or if I want something sweet after dinner.

What's really nice with these is that you can almost put in whatever you have at home. I used walnuts, cashews, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds, but other nuts and seeds work just as well. Begin with 15 dates (less if using big ones like medjools) and add more if the mixture is too dry. If it turns out too sticky you could just add more nuts, seeds or oats. I added licorice powder to mine because I love the flavour, but spices like cinnamon, cardamom and ginger are also so delicious. Or you could use only cacao/cocoa of course. Enjoy!

Yoga Fuel Chocolate Balls

15-20 fresh/soft dates, depending on size (use even less if using big dates like medjools)
1/2 cup (1 dl) rolled oats
1 cup (2 dl) raw nuts and seeds of your own liking
1/2 cup (1 dl) raw cacao powder or regular cocoa
1 tbsp almond butter
Pinch of salt
Optional: 1 tsp licorice powder
Optional: Hulled hemp seeds for rolling

Blend all the ingredients in a food processor until a sticky dough is formed. Shape into balls and roll them in hemp seeds if you like. Store in the fridge or freezer.
