Chocolate Coconut Date Balls

Good morning Good afternoon!

This morning sure started on a productive note! I was out of bed by 7, at spin class by 7:45, and my a client’s house by 9:00. Then I came home, showered, and I’ve been in PJ’s ever since. And if I don’t change the rest of the day, I think I’d be a happy girl Winking smile

Since I was on-the-run this morning, breakfast was eaten en route to my client’s house:


It’s been forever since I’ve had overnight oats! I’m typically not a huge fan, but these tasted fantastic! I eyeballed it, but it was about 1/3 c. oats, 2 tbsp. chia seeds, 1/2 scoop SW protein powder, stevia, raisins, plain greek yogurt, and some milk. Then I topped it with a sliced banana and two globs of almond butter.

I guess I haven’t been lazy the rest of the day, per say…but my laundry/practicing presentation to laying on the couch ratios are looking pretty tilted toward the former. Oops Winking smile 

Lunch called a little bit ago, and while it wasn’t your usual lunch, it was very tasty!



Salad w/ an egg, sriracha, and a tortilla toasted with shredded cheese and topped with guac. And a side of phone convo with my big brother Smile

Apparently today is also finally the day I start experiencing with drawl symptoms from giving up sweets. After lunch, I immediately craved something sweet. A chocolate covered banana chip would have been nice, but instead, I whipped up some energy bites and added some cocoa powder to chocolate-fy it up Smile


Chocolate coconut date balls! I’ve made numerous versions of nut-based balls, but I think these are my absolute favorite. I think one of the best pairings ever is dates + sunflower butter, and that combination was the inspiration of these balls.

Chocolate Coconut Date Balls

Time ~10 minutes

Makes ~12 balls

10-12 dates, pitted

1/3 c. sunflower butter

2 tbsp. almond/oat/coconut flour

1 tbsp. cocoa powder

1 tbsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. sea salt

1 tsp. coconut extract (optional)

unsweetened coconut flakes for rolling

Put everything in your food processor or blender and pulse until the mixture becomes a paste. It shouldn’t be lumpy. Roll into one inch balls and then roll in the coconut flakes to coat. Refrigerate until firm – about 1 hour.


I wasn’t sure what to expect with the flavor combination, but they ended up tasting awesome! Great consistency, too.

Aaaand there’s the buzzer to the laundry. Have a great Saturday, friends! Smile

Plans this weekend? How’s your Saturday going so far?
