For the keto option


  • In a high-speed blender or food processor, add your nuts and blend until a crumbly texture remains. Do not over-blend, as this will result in nut-butter. 
  • Add your Medjool dates and blend until thick and combined. Add your cocoa powder. Continue blending or pulsing, regularly scraping down the sides to ensure it is fully mixed. 
  • Pour the chocolate energy ball batter in a large bowl. Lightly wet your hands, form the dough into small balls and place on a lined plate and refrigerate for 10 minutes, or until firm. 


No Bake Whole30 Energy Balls (Paleo, Keto) should be kept refrigerated. They are also freezer friendly, and can keep for up to 2 months.
