Dark Chocolate Covered Energy Balls

I’m so excited to share this new recipe with you! I’ve been on an energy ball kick lately and have been doing a lot of experimenting with different combinations.

This recipe is sweetened only with dates and uses sunbutter instead of nut butter, so it’s perfect for kids to take to school. This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, and entirely vegan. If you want to make it completely sugar free, you could omit the dark chocolate coating, but I mean, why would you?!

I hope you love this recipe as much as I do! 🙂
