No-bake Energy Balls

After a run, under a warm rain, in a summer day...

Makes 8-10 balls:
Cashews (soaked overnight - 1 cup)
Oat flakes
 (1 cup)
Dates (12 - pitted)
Cocoa (raw - 1 tbsp) opcional

1) Combine cashews, oats and dates in a food processor. Pulse until the ingredients have broken down into crumb-sized pieces. Scrape the edges of the bowl and beneath the blade to make sure nothing is sticking.
2) Add the cocoa powder.
3) Process continuously until the ingredients clump together and gather into a ball.
4) Make small balls. Store the balls in the fridge and enjoy.
