Protein Energy Bites

Makes 15 to 20 balls


  • 12 soft medjool dates, pitted
  • 3/4 cup raw almonds
  • 3/4 cup raw walnuts
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp flax seeds
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp white sesame seeds
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 heaping tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 heaping tbsp hemp protein powder


  1. Dump all the nuts and seeds into the food processor. Blend into coarse crumbs. Add in the rest of the ingredients and pulse until it resembles a sticky crumble.
  2. Feel the crumbs between your fingers. Pulse more if required. It should be sticky enough to form balls. Add a few more pitted medjool dates if required.
  3. Remove crumbs onto a plate. Using your hands, roll crumbs into balls.
  4. These energy bites refrigerate well for up to 2 weeks. Eat as is, or crumble it over a bowl of milk or yogurt. Enjoy.
