Chocolate Hazelnut Energy Bites (No Bake)

Healthy Energy Bites Elizabeth Rider

These healthy energy bites are loaded with fiber, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to fill you up and give you a boost of natural energy.

If you love chocolate and sweet treats, then you will LOVE these energy bites.

This is one of the most popular recipes on my TV show, and I’m thrilled to share the full-length episode with you today! Be sure to print the recipe below to save and make for later.

Whip up a batch and snack on one or two of them when you need a little pick-me-up to get through the day. Once you make these, you’ll always want to have them on hand.

Healthy Energy Bites Make the Perfect On-The-Go Snack

These healthy energy bites are:

  • healthy
  • no-bake
  • anti-inflammatory
  • gluten-free
  • dairy-free
  • soy-free
  • vegan
  • simple to prepare
  • refined sugar-free
  • high in fiber
  • and delicious

Healthy Energy Bites Ingredients

Medjool Dates

Using fiber-rich and mineral-rich dates as a base, this chocolatey snack satisfies your sweet tooth and provides extra energy for your busy lifestyle. Dates are a great source of iron and of course make these energy bites naturally sweet.

Hazelnuts

Definitely a treat, hazelnuts give these energy bites and elevated flavor while adding even more fiber and some healthy fats. They also add great texture to this snack, which is often ignored in home cooking but one of the most important things you can think about when making delicious food at home. If you can’t find hazelnuts, almonds or walnuts would work great here instead. Use unsalted and un-roasted nuts so you can control the sodium and nutrition of your energy bites.

Raw Chocolate (aka Cacao)

Raw chocolate powder (aka cacao powder) is one of the most nutrient-dense foods in the world. It’s loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It has an earthy chocolate taste and pairs wonderfully with the dates since it has no inherent sweetness itself.

Almond Butter

The almond butter is used here for texture and also adds a wonderful texture to hold these bites together. Like our other ingredients here, it’s full of fiber and healthy fats. Look for unsweetened almond butter.

Chia Seeds

Adding even more texture to these healthy energy bites (notice the theme?), chia seeds help bind these together while adding omega-3 fats, minerals and another dose of fiber.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is healthy in small doses. Although it’s high in saturated fat, it also contains lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid naturally found in monther’s breast milk. A little goes a long way, and the flavor of it goes really well with the rest of the ingredients here.

Description

These Healthy Energy Bites with Chocolate & Hazelnut are our favorite snack to keep around. Snack on one or two when you need a pick-me-up to get through the rest of your day.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  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.

    These are delicious and super easy to make. This time I added a 1/2 t of kale powder for an extra boost without the green taste.

    Do you have nutritional info for your recipes?

    • Hi LPA, I don’t count calories or macros. My philosophy is to choose whole-food based, nourishing ingredients instead of counting calories. Thanks for being here! ~E
