Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls

Whether you’re about to crush a workout, head out for a hike, or just need a little afternoon pick-me-up, these no-bake chocolate peanut butter energy balls are a healthy, on-the-go snack that tastes just like peanut butter chocolate cookie dough. If you’re looking for an extra protein kick, add a scoop of your favorite Vega® Protein powder to the recipe below.


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup raw almonds
  • ⅓ cup raw cacao nibs
  • ¼ cup raw cacao powder (+ extra for coating)
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 8 pitted Medjool dates
  • ¼ cup natural peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp. hot water
  • 1 scoop of Chocolate Vega Sport® Premium Protein


  • Add all dry ingredients into a food processor and blend for a few seconds (or until coarse)

  • Add dates, peanut butter, and maple syrup

  • Process until combined, scraping sides as required. Depending on how sticky your dates are, if the mixture feels too dry, add hot water and adjust until you have a slightly sticky consistency

    (If you’re adding protein powder, you might need a little bit more water)

  • Roll mixture into approximately 24 balls

  • Coat balls with hemp seeds, cacao powder, or any other toppings you fancy

  • Store balls in an air tight container in the fridge for up to one week, or in the freezer for up to two weeks
