Chocolate Energy Bites

September 23, 2015

These chocolate no-bake energy bites taste just like a cookie, although they are full of protein and naturally sweetened.

Yield: about 16 bites


  • 1 cup almond
  • 2 cups pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoon chopped bittersweet chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Halve the dates to ensure that it does not remain pits ( I always find one or two pits in a bag of pitted dates ) .
  2. Soak dates in a bowl of water for about 10-15 minutes, then drain well.
  3. In a food processor, grind the almonds until crumbly. Add all other ingredients and grind until the formation of a paste.
  4. Pour into a bowl and place in the freezer for about 15 minutes so the dough is less sticky. In a plate, roll into 1-inch balls and coat with coconut, toasted sesame seeds or cocoa. Keep refrigerate or freeze.
