Chocolate Chip Cashew-Almond Energy Balls

Chocolate Chip Cashew-Almond Energy Balls


  • 2 cups Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 2 tablespoon Barney Butter Smooth Almond Butter, plus 2 tablespoons more for drizzling
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2-3 tablespoons mini chocolate chips


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a food processor, add all the ingredients except the chocolate chips and pulse, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally, until a big ball of dough forms. Transfer to a large bowl, add chocolate chips and use oiled hands to mix and combine.
  3. Using your hands, roll approximately 1 tablespoon of the mixture into balls. Repeat until all dough is used.
  4. Place in the refrigerator until firmed up, about 30 minutes.
  5. Place 2 tablespoons Barney Butter Smooth Almond Butter in a small microwave-safe dish and microwave until the consistency is easy to drizzle.
  6. Remove the balls from the refrigerator. Place the Barney Butter Smooth Almond Butter drizzle in a small zip top bag. Cut a small hole in one corner of the bag and drizzle over the balls.
  7. Place back in the refrigerator until firm, about 10 minutes.
Yield: 32 balls
