Make these irresistible no-bake energy bites made with dark chocolate, toasted hazelnut, and quinoa. Packed with dates, flax seed, and toasted coconut–they give the word ‘superfood‘ a whole new meaning.
Cook Jasmine with Quinoa according to package directions; let cool completely.
In a food processor, pulse dates, ½ cup coconut, and hazelnuts until finely ground.
Place the remaining coconut in a small pan and toast over medium-high heat; let cool completely.
Stir together Jasmine with Quinoa, date mixture, coconut oil, chocolate chips, hazelnut butter, cocoa powder, flax seeds and salt until well combined.
Roll 2 tablespoonfuls of mixture into a ball; repeat with the remaining mixture. Roll balls in toasted coconut. Transfer to parchment paper lined tray. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes or until firm (can be refrigerated for up to 3 days).
