These balls are a must for this weekend too! I was in energy ball heaven when I tried one of these tasty treats! In fact, I was literally scrapping the inside of the food processor clean and licking all my fingers, spoons and anything else that had some of the dough on it. Got a good visual of that? Good. Anyways, make these energy balls immediately!

- 1/2 cup pitted dates, soaked in water for 10 minutes
- 1 tblsp raw honey
- 2 tblsp chia seeds

- Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth or until the dates are mixed in well.
