  • cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ¼ cup cacao powder (note, it is not cocoa but cacao which is bitter unlike cocoa powder)
  • cup roughly chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • ¼ cup maple syrup


  • Add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl, starting with dry ingredients followed by wet ingredients.
  • Mix the ingredients until everything is combined well.
  • Scoop about 2 tablespoons of dough into your palms and roll it into a ball.
  • Gobble up a few energy balls and put the remaining in a container and store them in the fridge for later use.
  • Alternatively, put the well-combined dough into your favorite molds, put the mold in the freezer for 10-15 minutes, and then take the energy bites out of the mold.
  • Additionally, roll the energy balls in shredded coconut or drizzle almond butter or chocolate on top of them.


TIP: Since this recipe uses almond butter (which by default has some oil) and maple syrup, they both act as binding agents and there is no need to add any additional oil or water to combine the ingredients.
