Chocolate Almond Energy BallsOctober 25, 2015
Have you all jumped on the Energy Bites bandwagon?! It’s totally a thing now. These little bite-sized morsels are filled with lovely flavors and are so quick & easy to prepare, you’ll wonder how you lived without them until now! Trust me, they are that good! The recipe I’m sharing with you all today for the Chocolate Almond Energy Bites is the first variety I’ve ever made.
However, since then, I’ve made a number of other types. I simply can’t get enough of them! You will feel the same way, I’m sure!
Check them out! Aren’t they glorious?!
Chocolate Almond Energy Balls
1/2 cup slivered almond
1/3 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup dried dates
1 tsp. almond extract
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1. Place all ingredients into the food processor.
2. Pulse until the mixture starts to come together.
3. Form them into small balls.
Try one! You will likely want another one soon after!
Enjoy these! 🙂

This sounds like a great way to start your day! I would definitely try to make these and snag a couple on the way out the door in the morning and see if it improves the commute.
It might not shorten the commute, but it will surely lift your mood! 🙂
Wow! These sound delicious. I’ve been more cautious to my snacks lately. I’ve noticed that some snacks give a quick boost…and then a big crash after so I bet this would be a perfect new snack to grab!
I love these because they definitely provide a more steady source of energy. It’s also great that they’re so portable! You can just grab a few to go in a small plastic baggie!
Energy bites are all the rage these days but sadly I’ve never tried one. Yours look great, I just may have to make them for myself 🙂
They are so popular nowadays- and for good reason! They’re easy to make, customizeable and totally delicious! 🙂
I haven’t made anything like this before!! I’ve been wanting to, but haven’t had a great recipe yet. I’ll try these 🙂

I love dried dates, chocolate and almonds, so I’m sure I would love these energy balls. Looks like a great snack or breakfast.
Yes I take a few of these with me when I know I’ll be running around all day. Great snack!
I really want to try these! I make ones that have peanut butter, chocolate chips, and oatmeal in them but these sounds great too!
If you make these be sure to let me know what you think! 🙂
This sounds really good and like a great start to the day. I so need the energy on my boys school days I have to get up before the sun is even out!
Oh I hear you! I need extra energy on school days too!! 🙂
I pinned this! We are in a snack bind. We need things that are healthy and energizing because we are ALWAYS on the go!
This is a great portable snack! Thanks for sharing this!
I’ve seen a few different energy ball recipes, but this is the first that I have seen a Chocolate Almond one. I need to add this in my recipe box for November snacks.
I love the flavor combination of chocolate and almonds- so delicious! Hope you try it!
Thanks for sharing! I love energy bars but they are so expensive. These sound just as tasty and maybe less expensive also. I can’t wait to try them.
These energy balls would definitely be less expensive than store-bought bars!
These energy balls sound amazing! I love finding new ways to get protein in me.
These are totally delicious and so easy to make!
The chocolate almond energy balls looks so delicious and would be a perfect snack. The chocolate skewers looks delicious too.
Yes, those dessert skewers were another big hit with the kids!!
These sound like a delicious and super charged snack! I don’t think I’d have problems getting my kids to try these!
My kids absolutely loved these! I’m sure your kids will love them, too!
As I shove cookies and an oatmeal pie in my mouth at 8am…I really need to fill my house with healthier snacks.
Haha, an oatmeal pie sounds pretty good right about now!
But these energy balls are totally delicious and pretty healthy!! 🙂
Yum. These look delicious I’ve tried apple cinnamon energy balls but none like these. They look great! I will have to give them a try!
Definitely try them! I think you’ll love them like we do!
