Classic Almond and Cacao Energy Balls

March 22nd, 2016

A classic energy ball recipe for you all! This is an easy, simplified version of my favourite snack – this time with just five ingredients. These little beauties are my go to when I need a pick me up and my fridge/freezer is always piled high them. You can add extra hemp powder if you want to boost the protein kick, I do this if I’m taking them to the gym with me, which is great.


200g almonds (1 cup)

400g medjool dates (2 cups)

4 tablespoons raw cacao powder

2 Β½ tablespoons almond butter

2 tablespoons coconut oil


Begin by placing the almonds in the food processor and pulsing until they are nicely crushed.

Add the medjool dates and coconut oil and pulse until it’s fully mixed

Add the almond butter and cacao and then mix again in the food processor.

Take a tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a ball. Continue doing this until the mixture has finished.

Place the rolled balls into the freezer for around 1 hour, then remove and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
