Chocolate Energy Balls

By Galit Zarco

  • 1 cup GreenWise organic raw almonds
  • 15 Medjool dates, pitted (1.5 cups)
  • 1⁄2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon GreenWise organic pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup GreenWise organic unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)



First, place almonds into a food processor and process on high until you’ve created a fine almond meal.

Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and process on high until everything is combined.

Next, scoop a heaping tablespoon of dough into your hands and roll into a ball. Roll the ball in optional shredded coconut and place on a baking sheet. Repeat until dough is gone.

Place baking sheet in the freezer for 10-15 minutes and then transfer balls to a freezer safe bag and store in the freezer.

When you’re ready to snack on these delicious energy balls, grab a few in a to-go storage container in the morning, and they will thaw in an hour or two.



  • Do not blend almond meal too long or it will turn into nut butter!
  • You may need to add a few teaspoons of water to the mixture depending on how sticky your dates are.
  • Store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
