  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate morsels
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 2 cups dates, pitted
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt


  1. Add the almonds to the food processor and blend until chopped, but not all the way to a flour.
  2. Add in the dried cherries, dark chocolate morsels, pitted dates, ground cinnamon, and sea salt.
  3. Process until an even texture. (If you like there to be chunks of chocolate or cherries, you can stop a little sooner before everything is evenly processed - it’s up to you.)
  4. Carefully grab a small handful and roll into about 1-inch balls - the mixture will stick to itself pretty easily. You should be able to make about 12-15 energy bites.
  5. Place the energy bites into the fridge for about 15 minutes to set. These energy balls will keep fresh in an air-tight container for up to a week or you could freeze for longer.
