Almond Joy Energy Bites

Prep Time 10 min Serves 12 balls     adjust servings


  • 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)
  • 1 T coconut oil melted
  • 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.
