easy no cook chocolate cranberry energy balls


1/2 cup natural almond butter

1/2 cup Medjool dates, pitted

1/3 cup shredded coconut

1/4 cup cranberries, dried

1/4 cup pecans, chopped

3 tbsp dark chocolate mini-chips (I used the Enjoy Life brand)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/4 tsp salt

Plus...extra shredded coconut to roll the balls in – about 2-3 tablespoons


1Add almond butter and pitted dates to a high-speed blender or food processor. Blend until mixture has a "crumbly -doughy" kind of consistency.

2Next scoop the blended mixture into a small bowl and add in everything else.

3Mix a little bit by hand to combine everything, then roll into small, bite-size balls.

4Finish each with a roll through a plate with 2-3 tablespoons of shredded coconut.

  • These will keep for about 2 weeks refrigerated in a sealed container or small plastic bag. Can also be frozen for about 4 months, then thawed and enjoyed.
  • If your mixture seems too wet to roll into a good ball, just add a little more shredded coconut and roll again. If the mixture feels a little dry, just add a little coconut oil and re-roll.
