Paleo Energy Bites (AKA Paleo Crack Balls)

Paleo Energy Bites (AKA Paleo Crack Balls)


I am a jerk.  Seriously – I have no idea how I even have friends sometimes.   I first made this recipe (I have been like so creative lately….can you even stand it?!) weeks ago.  WEEKS ago.  And people have been asking me left and right for the recipe – I think I posted it on Facebook.  I don’t even remember.   Anyway here is the recipe along with me being sorry for being so effing far behind on life – I swear I am trying to catch up!

1/2c almonds
1/2c cashews
1/2c unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2c Enjoy Life chips
12 Medjool dates (pitted and diced)
1Tbsp coconut oil (melted)
1Tbsp honey
1tsp vanilla
1/4tsp cinnamon
Dash of sea salt

Grind almonds and cashews in food processor until broken down but not too fine – put into bowl. Mix in coconut, sea salt, cinnamon, and set aside. Now add dates and coconut oil to food processor and blend until it is almost a paste like texture, add to bowl with nuts. Add honey, vanilla, and chips and mix well. Form into balls and refrigerate for at least one hour. Keep refrigerated until “serving” (I.e. eat one out of the fridge every time you walk by).

    • They’re the perfect snack! I made them for a CrossFit competition and found that just eating a couple would tide me over and give me the energy I needed when I got hungry. Of course I ate lots of other snacks too – can never have too much food! lol 🙂

  2. Just made these-they look great. Only issue is they wouldn’t stick when I tried to roll them into balls-any suggestions? I put them in fridge all together and will cut them into bars instead. Just curious if anyone else had this issue? Thanks!

    • Hey Jenna! So sorry it took me so long to get back to you! Yes I did have that happen one time when I did not buy Medjool dates. They weren’t as “sticky” as the Medjool dates were. They were too dry and kind if hard in texture – this may be why you had this happen. I’m so sorry, but I hope the result was still delicious! 🙂
