These Date Balls are the Ideal Pick-Me-Up Snack

There is a time between lunch and dinner when the sun starts to dip and so does our blood sugar. If you find yourself feeling tired, unfocused, and maybe even a little moody around this hour, it’s time for a snack! These date balls are high-energy, healthy, easy to make, and can be kept in your bag. Also, did we mention how delicious they are?!


  • 2 cups pitted dates
  • ½ cup raw pecans
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla


  1. Line a baking pan with wax paper and set aside. (You will not be baking these, you just need a place to set your rolled bites as you make them).
  2. Put the dates, pecans, and cashews in your food processor and process until the mixture is fine.
  3. Add the cocoa powder, salt, almond butter, almond milk, and vanilla to your food processor and process until the mixture just starts to clump together.
  4. Roll 1 tablespoon-sized portion of the mixture into balls and place them on your prepared baking sheet.
  5. Put them in the fridge or freezer until they harden and enjoy.
