Chocolate Mint Power Balls (Raw, Vegan, and Paleo!)

Pleasantly sweet and full of flavor, these minty power balls are easy to eat on the go, for breakfast, lunch, and everything in between! They contain so many yummy superfoods, such as coconut, cacao, chia, and flax. What's not to like? WARNING: THESE  TREATS ARE HIGHLY ADDICTIVE!
Don't say I didn't warn you. ;)

3 Tbs chia seeds seeds
3 Tbs golden flax seeds

1. In a medium bowl, mix together the seeds and nibs with your hands. Then mix in the coconut oil and shredded coconut.
2. Stir in the honey, sunflower seed butter, and then the almond meal/ flour, then gently mix in mint.
3. Press the mixture onto a glass plate and place it in the freezer to harden for 10 minutes.
4. Remove the "dough" from the freezer and knead/ squeeze it into many 1-inch balls.
5. Place the balls on the plate and refrigerate until served.

Makes about 16 power balls.
