Chocolate Nut Energy Balls



  1. You will need a food processor for this recipe.
  2. Add walnuts/almonds, cashews, dates*, cocao powder, vanilla, and salt in a food processor.
  3. Process until mixture is well combined and comes together as a dough. Add chopped chocolate pieces and pulse once more to disperse.
  4. Once mixture is combined**, use your hands to form the dough into bite-sized balls, using about 1 tbsp of dough for each ball.
  5. If you'd like, you can roll balls in cocoa or coconut (even sprinkles!) for added texture and flavour.
  6. Place balls into a sealed storage container and store in the fridge for 1-2 weeks or the freezer for up to 3 months.


*Hard/dry dates: If the dates you are using are hard and dry, you can soak them in warm water for 10-15 minutes to soften. Just drain them well before using.

** Crumbly dough: If your dough seems too crumbly to stick together after processing even when squeezing it together with your hands, you can try adding a couple more dates or adding 1 teaspoon of water at a time until the mixture starts to hold together well enough to form into balls.
