Festive Energy Bites: Vegan Snowballs

I’ve had a new guilty pleasure for some weeks now: My daily ration of chocolate has been replaced by delicious (and healthy!) energy bites that only take five ingredients and five minutes to prepare. They make such a great alternative to all those Christmas treats that are not exactly sugar free 😉 Get the full recipe here… 

Ingredients for vegan energy bites

  • 8 dates
  • 45g cashew nuts
  • 1 tbsp. cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp. coconut oil
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • coconut flakes

(Makes about 12 balls)

How to make delicious vegan snowballs

  1. Remove the pits from the dates.
  2. Mix all ingredients with a blender.
  3. Form small balls from the dough and put them onto a plate with coconut flakes. Press the flakes firmly to the snowballs – done!


I love how these delicious vegan snowballs combine different tastes: Tasting like coconut in the beginning, then adding chocolate and nuts and resulting in a wonderful salty flavor. Pretty much perfect!

They even make a great gift to bring along for the Holidays. We usually eat all of them within a day but they can be stored in a box for one to two days until they become a little hard.

Justine from Justine kept calm and went vegan has published a similar recipe a couple of days ago by the way – you should also give her delicious raspberry bites a go!

    Haha, da habe ich anscheinend gleich noch jemanden abhängig gemacht 😀 Mit den Walnüssen schmeckt’s sicher auch super – ich hatte die Cashews am Anfang auch nur genommen, weil ich nichts anderes da hatte…

    Liebe Lisa,

    ich liebe Energy Balls auch heiß und innig – in allen möglichen Variationen, die man sich vorstellen kann! Ich habe schon viel zu lange keine mehr gemacht, stelle ich gerade fest – im Moment gibt es hier ein Keksrezept nach dem nächsten… 😀
    Aber das wird sich mit Sicherheit demnächst ändern – und ich freue mich schon sehr auf die gesunden Leckereien! 🙂

    Liebe Grüße

      Kekse sind natürlich auch super 😉 Die Energy Balls gehen aber extra schnell und ohne backen, das ist natürlich perfekt für so ungeduldige Leute wie mich 😀
