Chocolate Mint Energy Bites

  • Author: Emily
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 30-35 balls 1x


These cute little healthy snacks are packed with flavor and will help you power through your day!


  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 (8-ounce) bag pitted dates
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons mint extract
  • 23 tablespoons of water
  • 1/2 cup mini-chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup coconut flower


  1. Place the almonds, dates and cocoa powder in a food processor. Process until very fine, about a minute. Add 3 tablespoons water and mint extract and process until the mixture clumps together into a ball, about 10-15 seconds. If it does not come together, add another tablespoon of water and process again.
  2. Place the contents into a medium mixing bowl. Add in the chocolate chips and work into the mixture with a wooden spoon.
  3. Roll small balls about 3/4 inch in diameter with your hands, then roll each ball in the coconut flour and tap to remove the excess. Energy bites can be eaten right away or stored in the fridge for up to a week in zippered bags.
