GF Vegan Chocolate Energy Bites
1/2 cup almond flour 1/2 cup coconut flour 1/4 cup coconut oil, softened 1/4 cup pure maple syrup 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 1/2 cup finely chopped dark chocolate, optional Melted dark chocolate, for drizzling, optional
1. Place almond flour, coconut flour, coconut oil, maple syrup and cocoa in a medium mixing bowl and stir until combined. Stir in chopped dark chocolate (if using).
2. Scoop a heaping tablespoon of dough and roll it into a 1-inch ball. Repeat with remaining dough, placing each ball on a plate lined with wax paper. (Dough will feel slightly oily. Don’t worry. The oil will absorb into the dry ingredients as the bites chill.)
3. Drizzle each ball with melted dark chocolate, if desired.
4. Refrigerate bites 30 minutes to set up.
