  • In the bowl of a food processor combine the dates and pecans. Process until they resemble a coarse sand.
  • Add nut butter, syrup, oil and cocoa powder and process until a dough forms. If the dough does not come together, add some water, 1 tablespoon at a time until the dough sticks together when you press it between your fingers.
  • Pulse in the quinoa crisps and chocolate chips.
  • Form 1" balls with your hands and place on a parchment lined plate. Freeze for at least 30 minutes and then enjoy.
  • Keep in a covered container in the freezer for best results, but they will also keep in the fridge.
