With September here and many of us facing new routines and even more change, simple and delicious energy balls are a great way to fuel up when on the go.


  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut, divided
  • 2 cups Medjool dates, pitted
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder OR 3 tablespoons of any chocolate protein powder


  1. In a high-speed blender or food processor, combine your almonds, one cup of coconut and dates. Pulse until combined, regularly scraping down the sides. Add cocoa powder/chocolate protein powder and continue blending until a thick dough remains.
  2. If the dough is too crumbly, add some liquid (water or any type of milk), one tablespoon at a time, until the batter is thick and smooth.
  3. Transfer your dough into a mixing bowl. On a large plate, add the remaining half cup of coconut. Using your hands, form 12 small balls of dough, rolling each one in the coconut until completely covered.
  4. Place energy balls on a plate and refrigerate for at least an hour, or until firm. These should be stored in the fridge but can also be frozen.
