Almond Joy Energy Bites (Vegan & Gluten Free)

Almond Joy Energy Bites.  This past Sunday, we made Almond Joy Waffles for breakfast. They were a big hit so I decided I would try some almond joy energy bites with similar ingredients.

My husband liked these healthy vegan almond energy bites so much, that I had to stop him from eating them all.  I still needed to take pictures. A common food blogger problem haha!

It’s funny because as soon as he gets home from work, I am shoving things in his face to taste test.  I like to get his approval as well as my three year old.

She helped me make these and kept trying to sneak the batter when she thought I wasn’t looking.  Sneaky sneaky.  Can’t say I blame her.  They are delicious!

  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 10-12 medjool dates
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp almond extract (I used 1/4 only because my husband doesn’t like a strong almond flavor)

  • 2 T water
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips I used carob chips


  1. In a food processor, mix the almonds and coconut until they are fine.
  2. Then add the dates, coconut oil and water and continue to pulse until you see a dough start to form.
  3. Roll into balls and place in the fridge to firm up.


I got about 12 balls out of my batch.
