Protein Energy Bites

Everything I read lately is about these Medjool Israeli dates! I didn’t put much thought into going out of my way to find these dates but I just happened to walk into Costco and there they were. I couldn’t help it! I checked out all those recipes again, did the typical adjusting and ended up with this as my finished recipe!

I had a hard time finding raw cacao powder so I bought cacao nibs at bulk barn and puréed them in the magic bullet.

I feel like these won’t last long in my fridge!


  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup Medjool dates, pitted (Approximately 11 medium)
  • 4 tbsp. cashew butter
  • 2 tbsp. raw cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 tsp. maca powder
  • 1/4 cup protein powder *optional*


Place coconut and almonds in food processor and pulse until well blended, about a minute. Add dates in one at a time, and then add the rest of the ingredients. Once all well combine use a spoon to make 1″ bites.

Place in the refrigerator on a cookie sheet for minimum 30 minutes – 2 hours and then place in an airtight container and enjoy all week long!

    So I made these Protein Energy Bites and they were really good. However I didn’t have the right cocoa or the maca powder on hand so I used fry’s cocoa and 1/3 cup vanilla protein powder instead. It made 20 Bites and I figured out the calories on each bite is 126.

    Thanx for sharing!
