Place everything except the chocolate chips in a food processor. Pulse for a few seconds and push down the ingredients and pulse again until the ingredients are combined.
Add the chocolate chips and give it one more very quick pulse to combine. I like to reserve a few chocolate chips to roll the finished energy balls to make them look irresistible.
Roll the dough into bite-size balls, roll in reserved chocolate chips, and then store in the fridge. Allow the energy balls some time to chill in the fridge for about 5-10 minutes before serving to allow them to firm up or eat them in their ooey gooey room temperature state.
Substitute 1 cup of pitted medjool dates for the sweetener to keep this whole foods focused.
