Energy Balls With Quinoa And Dates

You only need 6 easy ingredients to make these vegan chocolate quinoa energy bites with dates. The ingredients include 1 cup quinoa, 2 cups dried dates (pitted), and 1 cup almond milk.

You also need 12 oz dairy free dark chocolate chips for baking, 1 tsp stevia, and 1/2 tsp salt. Plant based quinoa chocolate energy balls recipe with dates are so simple to cook also. 

Start with a large mixing bowl and combine the dried dates (pitted) with almond milk. Allow the dried dates to soak for 1 hour at room temperature (this helps them blend up better).

In the meantime cook the quinoa in a medium cooking pot, bring 2 cups water to a boil. Add the quinoa to the boiling water and simmer for 10-12 minutes. Then remove from heat. 

Store cooked quinoa in the refrigerator while preparing the rest of this recipe. Using a blender or food processor, purée the soaked dates and almond milk. If it doesn’t purée perfectly that’s ok. Mine was a little chunky. 

Add the date purée to the bowl with the cooked quinoa and mix together with a large mixing spoon. In a separate large mixing bowl melt the sugar free dark chocolate chips in the microwave. Heat for 40 seconds at a time, and stir in between to prevent burning the chocolate.

Add the quinoa dates energy bite mixture into the melted chocolate and stir vigorously with a large spoon until thoroughly combined. Your chocolate energy balls recipe with dates is almost ready.

Store the mixture in the refrigerator to allow it to thicken in order to form the energy balls (3 hours maximum). Then separate healthy energy bites into 9 separate portions and manually roll them into balls.
