Crunchy Chocolate Quinoa Balls

These worked out better as balls instead of bars, they were too thick as bars.  I like using chow mein noodles for an extra crunch !

1 cup Quinoa Flakes or Quaker Quick Oats
1-1/2 to 2 cups vegan chow mein noodles (I actually used 2 cups)
1/2 cup peanut butter 
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
2 cups chopped dates 
1/4 - 1/2 cup almond milk (depending on how dry your dates are)

Blend dates and almond milk in blender until smooth.   I leave some date pieces - it makes them chewier.

Melt peanut butter with chocolate chips in microwave.

Then combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix together.
Roll into balls and store in fridge.

My favorite food processor is the KitchenAid  7-Cup Food Processor

For blenders, I use both the  Vitamix Blender and Ninja Master Prep Professional Blender
