Cacao-Carob Super-Charged Cookie Balls

I just want to apologize for the delay in posting a new recipe this week. I originally was planning to post a delicious super-charged, chocolaty smoothie on Sunday, but was temporarily “banned” from posting on my blog. Since I didn’t bother to write the smoothie recipe down anywhere, I lost it somewhere in my brain. Maybe I’ll remember at another time. Oh well.

The recipe I have for you today is super-charged as well! It’s packed with superfoods, super flavor, and super energy! Be careful not to eat too much at once, you could end up flying around the room like a superhero – not kidding! Lol…

I made such a big batch of these cookie balls, but they were gone in two days. I did share them with friends, and so did my husband…I’ll have to make more! Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 cup raw almonds (not soaked)
1 cup raw walnuts
1/2 cup goji berries
1/2 cup raw cacao nibs
2T raw carob powder
1T raw mesquite powder
2 tsp raw vanilla powder
1 tsp cordyceps mushrooms
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1T bee pollen
1T raw hemp seed
1/2 cup organic dried coconut flakes
1 1/2 cup pitted dates (well packed)
2 drizzles raw agave nectar
1T raw almond butter

Preparation:
Start by combining the nuts, cacao nibs, and goji berries together in a food processor, and mix until crumbly. Add remaining ingredients except for the dates. Mix until crumbly and well combined. Finally add the dates. Mix again until dates are broken down, combined well, and mixture starts to form a sticky, crumbly dough consistency. Remove from food processor. Using a cookie scoop or big spoon, take scoops of dough and shape in between your hands to form a ball shaped cookie. You can flatten them too, if desired. Store cookie balls in an air tight container. They don’t have to be refrigerated, but refrigeration will extend the freshness. These cookies are super-packed with power, so careful not to over-indulge…you’ll be flying high and feeling fine!
