Simple no-bake energy balls that are delicious and quick to make. Just mix all the ingredients, and shape into an edible ball. Freeze and serve.



1 cup gluten-free old fashioned oats

6 medium dates pitted and soaked

½ cup almond butter

¼ cup coconut oil melted

½ cup of chocolate chips

1/4 cup cocoa powder


1. In a medium bowl soak the pitted dates for 5 minutes to soften them, then transfer them to a food processor or blender and blend them smooth.


2. In a large bowl add almond butter and coconut oil. Microwave for 30 seconds, remove from the microwave, add the blended dates and stir with a spatula to combine well.


3. Add old fashioned oats and combine well. Add cocoa powder and chocolate chips. Mix well with a spatula. Make sure the mixture is not too sticky if sticky add more oats. If the mixture is too dry add more almond butter. It should be sticky but slightly crumbly.


4. Cover the mixture with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap and place it in a cool dry place or refrigerator for 10 minutes.


5. Press the mixture and roll them into medium balls. You should make 6-8 balls from the mixture. Enjoy immediately or store covered in the refrigerator.


These oatmeal energy balls can stay fresh if refrigerated for up to three months.
