Sweet and chewy easy, no-bake, date protein energy balls are a delicious snack you can enjoy any time of day or use as a pre-workout energy boost.


  • 1 cup of pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup of raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup of rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup of vanilla protein powder (I prefer Vega)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • pinch of salt


  1. Begin by placing the pitted dates in a food processor and pulse until they become a sticky paste.
  2. Next, add the raw almonds and pulse until they are finely chopped.
  3. Add in the rolled oats, chia seeds, maple syrup, protein powder, salt, and cinnamon to the mixture in the food processor. Pulse until everything is well combined.
  4. If the mixture appears too dry, add a small amount of water (1-2 tablespoons) to help bind everything together.
  5. Once the mixture is well combined and holds together, use your hands to roll the mixture into small bite-sized balls.
  6. Place the balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to set.
  7. Store the protein date balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
