Vegan & Gluten Free Chocolate & Pecan Energy Bites

Hi guys! This snack is incredibly versatile, healthy, and SO yummy. All you need is a food processor to put them together, and you don't even need to bake them! 

First, process the dates until a date ball forms, and I find that if you break it up with a wooden spoon before adding the other ingredients it combines better.

Transfer the combined dates, vegan chocolate, pecans, oats, and maple syrup to a bowl and prepare a plate with a layer of shredded unsweetened coconut.

Take about a tablespoon of the date mixture and roll it in your hands, and then roll it in the coconut. Place the finished product on a plate or a baking sheet and refrigerate!
