If you're looking for a delicious and healthy snack to curb cravings, boost energy, and is super easy to make, you are going to love these no-bake chocolate energy bites!
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Serving Size: 16 energy bites

Ingredients

  • ½ cup walnuts
  • 1-2 scoops of Super Youth Chocolate Cake
  • 15 whole pitted dates, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup shredded coconut, unsweetened (divided in half)
  • 1 ½ Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 Tbsp water

  2. Place ¼ cup of shredded coconut into a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients into a food processor and mix until well blended.
  4. Using a tablespoon measure, spoon out mixture and roll into individual balls. You can use plastic gloves during this step to keep your hands clean, but if you don’t have any, here’s a tip—wet your hands with water before starting the rolling process to avoid excess batter to stick to your hand.
  5. Coat each ball in the reserved 1/4 cup shredded coconut.
  6. Place on a parchment covered baking sheet and refrigerate for at least thirty minutes until they harden.
  7. Store in the fridge in an airtight container or plastic bag for up to two weeks.
