Cinnamon roll energy balls are sweet, soft, chewy, and oh so delicious! Reminiscent of real cinnamon rolls, this is a healthier alternative to the traditional breakfast pastry. They’re healthy, no-bake, vegan, gluten-free, and oil-free. The recipe is made with 6 ingredients, sweetened with medjool dates, and ready in just 10 minutes. Enjoy these cinnamon energy balls as an on-the-go breakfast, snack, or easy dessert.


  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup medjool dates, tightly packed (~15 dates)
  • 1/2 cup oats, preferably quick oats
  • 1 + 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 + 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt, less if your cashews are salted


  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor.
  2. Process the ingredients until a nearly-smooth, sticky dough forms. See notes if your dough isn’t sticking together.
  3. Use a mini cookie scoop or a tablespoon to scoop the dough into 13-15 rounds. Roll each round of dough into a ball. Enjoy!


  • Don’t forget to pit the medjool dates.
  • If your dates are dry and hard, you may have a difficult time processing the ingredients into a sticky dough. If this is the case, simply add 1 tsp melted coconut oil. Alternatively, add in a few extra medjool dates.
