Date Energy Balls

Date Energy Bites- 3 ways

Below is 3 recipes for energy balls. You will learn to mix and match as you please. 

For all of the 3 recipes, you can replace nuts with seeds if you have a nut allergy or oats with almond flour or alternatively use gluten-free oats if you are gluten intolerant.

Simple Oat and Nut Energy Balls

100g Dates

50g oats

1 tablespoon of coconut oil

2 tablespoons water

50g nuts (cashew or almond)


Cocoa Energy Balls (nut-free)

100g Dates

50g oats

50 g seeds (Pumpkin/Sunflower)

I tbs cocoa 

1 tbs coconut oil

1 tsp vanilla paste


Vanilla Protein Balls (Gluten-Free)

25g vanilla protein powder

50g almond flour or gluten-free oats

40g peanut butter

30g cashew nuts

1 tbs honey

1 tbs coconut oil


Methods for all is as follows

Using your food processor firstly whizz up the nuts or seeds to break them down. You still want them a little chunky so don’t whizz too much. 5/10 sec is plenty.


Add in the remainder of the ingredients and whizz until they all come together. You want the mixture to be sticky but not too wet. 

If it’s too wet add extra oats or almond flour

If you feel its too dry a few tablespoons of water will bring it together

*You can roll balls in desiccated coconut or chopped nuts for that extra wow

Line a baking tray with parchment paper. 

Using your hands roll the mixture into small balls and place in the tray on parchment paper.

Put in freezer for 10 minutes. Take out and put into a sealed container in the fridge and enjoy it when you need an energy kick or healthy treat.

Perfect also for Kids lunch boxes (the nut-free ones)
