  • 2 ½ cups pitted dates
  • 2 cups slivered almonds (toasted)
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut chips (toasted)


  • Add the dates, almond, cinnamon, and salt to your food processor.
  • Process the ingredients for about 20 seconds, scrape down the bowl, then process for an additional 20 seconds or until the mixture forms a thick paste.
  • Finely chop the toasted coconut chips, then transfer to a plate.
  • Use a 1½-inch cookie scoop to form the mixture into balls, then roll each one in the coconut.
  • Repeat until you’ve used all of the date mixture. You should end up with 18 energy bites.
