Who doesn’t like a quick and easy snack? I will warn you though. While this snack is easy to make and is considered “clean,” it is NOT something that’s low calorie that you just want to sit back and eat a ton of if you’re trying to lose weight. Those calories do tend to add up!
I do quick and easy, so that’s what I’m going to share here. I just dump stuff into my food processor and wait until the texture is just right. So I’ll give you a ’round about’ idea of measurement, but… if you’re as busy as I am with my million kiddos in toe and sports coming out my ears… then not having to mess up those measuring cups will just save you that extra cleaning step. Right? And who likes to wash all those dishes anyway???
Quick and Easy Pecan Pie Espresso Shakeology Balls
Throw into your food processor approximately:
1 1/2c Pecans (You can use almonds if you like.)
1c Dates (pitted)
1 scoop Shakeology
Turn it on and watch until the mixture resembles course crumbs. At that point, you want to add espresso or strong coffee a little bit at a time, until the mixture becomes LIGHTLY sticky, between a teaspoon and a tablespoon.
Once it is lightly sticky, turn off your food processor and form the ‘dough’ into small bite-size balls.
My kiddos LOVE this treat! No added sugar. No bad ingredients. Something I can give them with confidence and leave them grinning from ear to ear. Enjoy!
