CACAO & JACKFRUIT ENERGY BOMBS
Ingredients for 16 balls - Prep time: 50 minutes
3 tablespoons finely chopped dried jackfruit
1 Large medjool date optional - skip to keep keto
½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
2 tablespoons brown flax seeds
1½ cups raw cashews
2 tablespoons cacao powder
3 tablespoons cacao nibs
¼ cup coconut oil
¼ cup creamy cashew butter
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
½ teaspoon himalayan fine pink salt
PREPARATION: In the bowl of a food processor or high-powered blender, combine all of the ingredients except for cocoa nibs. Pulse for 1-2 minutes, until the cashews begin to break down along with the other ingredients.The mixture will become grainy at first. Keep processing until the oils start to release from the nuts and the mixture sticks together. Add cacao nibs and pulse until just combined. Use a tablespoon to divide the mixture into 16 equal pieces and with clean hands roll into balls. Place on a plate for 30 minutes in a refrigerator to allow the Cacao & Jackfruit Energy Bombs to firm up.
BONUS TIP: If your mixture seems too dry, you may need the extra tablespoon of cashew butter to help it come together.
