Banana Nut Balls

These are a snack I threw together last week. They are super rich (even without added sweetener) and are a great treat when the sweet tooth hits. I have these in the freezer to indulge on every now and then. I hope you enjoy!

Banana Nut Balls
1 C Cashews
1 C Pecans
1 C Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
1 C Dried Banana Chips
3/4 C Coconut Oil
Honey (Optional)
8 oz Dark Chocolate

In the food processor, pulse nuts, seeds and banana chips to a pea size texture.
Add in coconut oil (not melted) and process until it comes together into a sticky dough.

Using a bit more coconut oil, grease your hands and form dough into balls.
 Place balls into the freezer to set up for at least an hour. When ready to dip, melt chocolate in a double boiler.
Remove balls from the freezer and dip into the melted chocolate. Allow to sit out in room temperate for a bit so the centers soften slightly. Enjoy!
