Easy Date and Cacao Energy Balls

Our Easy Date and Cacao Energy Balls are bursting with goodness and flavour. Rich in skin-loving vitamin E from the almonds, gut-loving fibre from the dates, and energy-providing magnesium from the cacao powder, these nourishing nuggets are the perfect healthy snack that masquerades as an indulgent treat.


200 almonds
30g coconut oil (we like Biona Coconut Oil 400g Organic)
30g cacao powder plus extra for rolling (we like Raw Chocolate Cacao Powder)
30g peanut butter (we like Meridian Organic Smooth Peanut Butter)
16 dates (we like Crazy Jack Organic Ready to Eat Dates)


Start by blending the almonds in a food processor until nicely crushed.
Then, add the coconut oil and dates and pulse until fully mixed. Repeat with the cacao power and peanut butter.
Take a tablespoon of the mixture and roll it into a ball. Repeat until all the mixture has finished.
Place the energy balls in the freezer for around 1 hour, then remove them and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
