A healthy energy snack

We all need a pick me up or a quick snack but instead of taking a bite out of that chocolate bar or get a sugar lift, try a healthier option!



 These little goodness, filled with fuel, chocolate date balls are so easy to make!
All you need is a blender and two hands to roll them in. 


  • 1/3 cup pecans
  • 1/3 almonds
  • 1 1/3 pitted dates
  • 3 tbs shredded coconut
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla paste
  • 2 tbs cocoa powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 2 tbs milk (almond) 


Whizz together to a sticky paste, roll them into bite size balls followed by rolling them in your covering.
Totally up to you what! I used shredded coconut and sprinkles that we had left over but you can also use sesame seeds or grind nuts.

  1. Yum! They look like chocolate truffles! 🙂 We’ve made energy bites similar to this, but this one has different ingredients. Will have to try them out!
