Chocolate Hazelnut Energy Bites
Prep time:
Total time:
Yield: 12
  • ¼ cup raw hazelnuts
  • 15 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 tablespoons cacao (raw chocolate) powder or substitute unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt
  1. In the food processor, grind the hazelnuts into medium-fine crumbles. Overall, it should be an even grind.
  2. Remove the blade from the food processor and transfer the ground hazelnuts to a plate.
  3. Put the blade back in your food processor and add dates, raw cacao, almond butter, chia seeds, coconut oil, vanilla extract and sea salt.
  4. Run the food processor for a minute, then stop and scrape down the sides which may be repeated once or twice. Once the mixture forms a ball, it should be done.
  5. Transfer the mixture to your cutting board. Scoop into the mixture, roll into a ball with the palms of your hands, then coat the balls in the ground hazelnuts until evenly coated.
  6. Place all the energy bites on a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper, and refrigerate for 30 minutes -1 hour.
  7. Store in a glass container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
