Serves: 14-15 balls

Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: No cooking


  • 1 cup chocolate hazelnut butter (I used this brand or make your own from Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook on page 292)
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 8 pitted dates
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate protein powder
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • 2 tablespoons ground chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon espresso powder
  • 1 tablespoon maple sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor (except for the chocolate chips) and pulse until completely combine. Then fold in chocolate chips until combine.
  2. Use a cookie scoop to scoop mixture then press mixture firmly in the cookie scoop. Remove then form ball with hands. Repeat until all mixture is gone, about 14-15 energy balls.
  3. Place in fridge to firm up for about 30 minutes. And store in fridge until serving!
