2 tablespoons raw honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 dates (pitted)
2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
1 cup dessicated coconut for coating
1. Place all of the ingredients (except the coconut) into a blender and mix until smooth.
2. Use your hands to roll the mixture into small balls.
3. Pour the coconut onto a chopping board and roll each of the balls until coated.

For an added protein boost, try using alternatives to the cashews like ABC butter or roll in sesame seeds instead of coconut. Great for taking on rides, hikes and runs!Thanks to Sarah-Anne from Karmea Fitness for the recipe! Visit Karmea Fitness
