Raw Nut and Seed Chocolate Chunk Mint Energy Balls

Raw Nut and Seed Chocolate Chunk Mint Energy Balls

Raw homemade nut and seed treats are perfect little bundles of protein, good fats, fiber and other mineral nutrients that can keep you going between meals or at any time of day. In fact, I can't say anything against them … they're easy to make, keep for a long time, and taste absolutely delicious.

Chocolate and mint is one of my favorite combinations, so these little energy balls are flavored with peppermint extract, cocoa and chunks of good quality dark chocolate in addition to the healthy medley of nuts, nut butter, seeds and maple syrup. They're so good that there was never any chance of them lasting for the two weeks that they could keep.
