Cacao & Almond Energy Balls | Recipe

We love this chewy, chocolatey blend of cacao, almonds and dates from Deliciously Ella. This fab energy ball is a source of copper which contributes to normal energy yielding metabolism.


  • 200g almonds
  • 400g medjool dates
  • 4 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 2 ½ tablespoons almond butter

  1. Begin by placing the almonds in the food processor and pulsing until they are nicely crushed.
  2. Add the medjool dates and coconut oil and pulse until it’s fully mixed.
  3. Add the almond butter and cacao and then mix again in the food processor.
  4. Take a tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a ball. Continue doing this until the mixture has finished.
  5. Place the rolled balls into the freezer for around 1 hour, then remove and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
