Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls

Who doesn't love chocolate and peanut butter together!? These delicious energy balls are made primarily with dates as the base to hold all the ingredients together making these perfect for a pre or post workout fuel source. ​

Makes ~18-20 balls



  • 15 Pitted dates

  • ½ cup Oats

  • ⅓ cup Unsweetened coconut flakes

  • ½ cup Ground flaxseed

  • 1 tbsp. Chia seeds

  • 2 tbsp. Cocoa powder

  • ¼ cup Natural peanut butter

    • Or any other nut/nut-free butter



  1. Soak dates in warm water for ~10min to soften them.

  2. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until mixed.

  3. Roll into 1 inch balls and add 2 or 3 balls into snack baggies.

  4. Store in the fridge or freezer if you made a lot.

  5. Enjoy :)


Note: This recipe is made using a 2-cup food processor (single serving blender size). If you have a bigger food processor you can double or even triple the recipe. If you do not have a food processor you can still make this recipe (and get a mini arm workout) by using a fork to mash all the ingredients together.
