|Chocolate Covered Pecan Date Balls|
These delicious treats may look like candy, and they even taste like candy, but they're actually high protein energy balls, dipped in antioxidant rich dark chocolate. Made with raw pecans, dates, and a touch of cinnamon and salt, they are a super yummy "dessert" you can enjoy any time of day. Even without the chocolate coating, they are sweet and satisfying, and so simple to make. I brought them to a super bowl party a few weeks ago (hence the Eagles serving dish), and they were gone before halftime. Luckily I saved a bunch in my freezer for another day. I've enjoyed them before a workout for an extra energy boost, and after a meal for a little something sweet without filling me up. My parents couldn't believe there was no added sugar in the recipe, and suggested I try adding a little brandy into the next batch, which I might just have to try!
