  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 10 pitted medjool dates
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor.
  2. Process ingredients until a sticky dough forms. You should be able to pinch it together with your hands. If the dough isn’t sticky enough to roll into balls, add an extra dash of maple syrup, almond butter, or medjool dates. This can happen if your dates are too dry.
  3. Roll the dough into balls. Enjoy!


  • It is best to use natural almond butter that has a runnier consistency.
  • If your almonds are already salted, skip the 1/4 tsp salt.
  • Store energy balls in a sealed container for 5-7 days at room temperature or inside the refrigerator. You can also store them in the freezer for up to 3 months.
