DARK CHOCOLATE CHIP BALLS

Hmmmm! I had a long day at work and when I got home I was craving something moist with chocolate. Usually I would buy something calorie dense at the closest dessert store but I was able to conquer that habit and make something clean when I got home, and it was totally worth it. It may take a little extra time and effort but you have to remember that your body is a temple and your health is your virtue, and the two cannot exist without each other, so you have to treat it with value and respect πŸ™‚ ohh, and these were delicious!

Recipe:

2 small organic ripe bananas (mashed)
2 tbsp organic raw almond butter
3 1/2 tsp organic raw cacao powder
2 tsp organic pure vanilla extract
1 tsp organic gluten free baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/4 cup almond flour or 1/2 cup coconut flour (you can also use a little less than 1 cup brown rice flour)
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips or semi sweet dairy free chocolate chips (I used camimo, but enjoy life’s works just fine)
A pinch of sea salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and roll batter into medium balls.
Place balls on a non stick lightly greased baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. If you use brown rice flour, then bake for 12-13 minutes.
When ready, let it cool and enjoy!
