How to Make Quinoa Chocolate Cherry Energy Bites

Step-by-Step

  1. In a food processor, combine quinoa, cherries, walnuts, cocoa powder and chocolate and process to evenly mix.
  2. Add dates to processor and pulse until well combined and forming a sticky “dough”.
  3. With clean, slightly wet hands, roll mixture into approximately 1-inch size balls. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate to store. They will become firmer as they cool.
