Chocolate Date Energy Balls


  • 2 cups pitted dates
  • ½ cup raw pecans
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • 2 TBS cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 TBS almond butter
  • 1 TBS unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla


  • Line a baking pan with wax paper set aside. (You will not be baking these, you just need a place to set your rolled bites as you make them).
  • Put dates, pecans and cashews in your food processor fitted with an “S” blade. Process until mixture is fine and homogeneous.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients in the order listed (cocoa powder, salt, almond butter, almond milk, & vanilla) to your food processor and process until mixture just starts to clump together.
  • Roll 1 TBS portions of your “dough” into balls and place them on your prepared baking sheet.
  • Put them in the fridge or freezer until they harden.
  • Transfer to an airtight container to save for later! These can be stored at room temperature, but will last longer when kept in the fridge or freezer! I think they taste the best cold/frozen!
