Chocolate Mint Energy Bites

These bites are a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth or a chocolate craving while avoiding ultra processed treats. They are gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, vegan and Paleo friendly.


1 cup pitted dates

1 cup unsalted nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans, or cashews work well)

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1 tbsp chia seeds or ground flax seeds

1/4 tsp peppermint extract

1/8 tsp sea salt

1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (make sure they are dairy-free if you want dairy-free or vegan bites)


  1. Place all ingredients except for the chocolate chips in a food processor. Pulse until everything is broken down and well combined.

  2. Transfer to a medium size bowl and mix in the chocolate chips.

  3. Use your hands to roll into ~15 even sized balls.

  4. Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.

Yields ~15 balls
