Organic Sunbutter dark chocolate coconut cranberry balls

So like most people nuts do not always agree with me and my son has a nut allergy, specifically to peanuts. The great thing is I can do most seeds. So today one of my girlfriends called me asking for RAW snack recipes. I have a few but did a spend on this one because I needed to leave Mr. Peanut alone today.  What makes these little bits of yumminess awesome is that they are loaded with vegan protein, high in antioxidants, hence, the 90% dark chocolate. lol. They are also a great pre and post workout snack you and pop in your mouth and go.

This recipe is super versatile and you and make all kinds of high protein good carb balls with it.

Enjoy! Oh yeah! Remember to Set the Table with LOVE!

Sunbutter dark chocolate coconut cranberry balls

In a large bowl combine

3/4 cup of Sunbutter ( this is just grounded sunflower seeds) I bought Natural Sunbutter but you can ground your own if you like

1 cup of Dehydrated Organic Coconut ( unsweetened) I am big coconut fan! 🙂 

1 cup of rolled oats  ( in this recipe I used oat groats, I blended them some and poured them in the mixture it gave the balls a nice crunch. 

1/2 cup of  chopped dark chocolate chunks , you can also use dark, semi sweet or milk  chocolate chips.

1/2 cup of dried cranberries 

1 tsp of chia seeds

Blend all the ingredients. You want the balls to have a nice texture that will bind easily into a ball. If they are dry use more Sunbutter, if they are too wet use more oats or coconut flakes.

Tip ~ Wet your hand some to create the balls more easily.

After the balls are created you can put them in the fridge to harden some or you can enjoy them immediately.

I like to dip them in cacao powder or even coconut flakes

Enjoy!
