Instructions

Step 1. Begin by gathering and measuring all of your high-quality ingredients.
Step 2. Harness the power of your food processor: combine freeze-dried coconut meat, oats, almonds, and half of your chia and flax seeds. Blend until you achieve a velvety texture.
Step 3. Transition to a spacious bowl, gently marrying the processed mixture with the remaining chia and flax seeds, coconut oil, Copra’s Organic Coconut Nectar, chocolate chips, invigorating orange juice, shredded coconut, fragrant orange zest, vanilla extract, and the zing of orange extract. Mix thoroughly to craft a symphony of flavors.
Step 4. Grant your creation a brief respite in the cool embrace of the refrigerator for a mere 15 minutes.
Step 5. Once your masterpiece has chilled, embrace the tactile joy of rolling the dough into bite-sized orbs of scrumptiousness.
Step 6. Elevate your energy balls to the next level by enrobing them in a delicate robe of shredded coconut and vibrant orange zest. This step isn't just about aesthetics; it's a flavor-infusing ritual that enhances the sensory journey.
Step 7. And now, the moment you've been waiting for – indulge in your homemade Orange and Dark Chocolate Energy Balls! Each bite is a burst of harmonious flavors that uplift your spirits and fuel your body ✨
