Mix: Place all ingredients in food processor, blend until combined. Add 1 tablespoon water at time if needed to help the mixture clump up. I used about 1 tablespoon, use at your discretion.
Don’t worry if the dough seems a little too sticky, as it will become a bit stiffer once refrigerated. And if it’s a little sticky it will help when you roll the balls in a coating. If the mixture is too wet, try adding a pinch or two of oats. The dryer they are the more they will be a stiffer, but chewy cookie. The moister they are, they will be more like cookie dough. Both ways are good. :)
Scoop + Roll: Next, roll the dough into one inch balls. If dough seems too sticky to roll, refrigerate the dough for about 20 minutes before rolling.
Finishing touch: You can roll the energy bites in a variety of ingredients for a nice finishing touch. I rolled some in hemp hearts, coconut, cinnamon and cacao powder. I wanted to experiment with different coatings. If rolling in powders be sure to gently lift and drop your coated balls a few times an inch or two above a hard surface to let any excess powder fall off.
