Protein BALLS

Paleo energy balls: in a food processor mix a half a cup of almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, hazelnuts, and pecans, take the nut flour out of the processor and then blend up about 6 dates and shredded coconut, put them all together and add ground coffee and cacao and mix it all up with coconut oil, form into little balls and throw them in the fridge and presto! Easy to bring on the go energy balls, I’m sure the recipe would work well with chocolate protein instead of cacao powder!
