Chewy, coconutty energy bites made with healthy and wholesome ingredients? Yes! You can also enjoy this tasty sweet snack throughout the day as well.


  • cup toasted unsweetened coconut flakes
  • cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 tbsp hemp hearts
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • ½ cup pitted and packed dates (I use Medjool, Mazafati, and bam)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil , melted
  • 1 ½ tsp spirulina
  • 2 tbsp matcha powder , optional


  1. Step 1

    To a food processor, add coconut flakes, oats, hemp hearts, chia seeds, sesame seeds, dates and coconut oil. Pulse until a sticky dough is formed.

  2. Step 2

    Add spirulina, half a teaspoon at a time, pulsing after each addition and tasting the mixture. If you prefer a stronger spirulina taste, I recommend adding up to 1 1/2 teaspoon of spirulina. On the other hand, if you would like a milder taste, add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of spirulina.

  3. Step 3

    Using a tablespoon, scoop out the mixture and roll into balls using your hands. Transfer to a plate and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  4. Step 4

    (Optional) After refrigerating for 30 minutes, roll your energy balls in some matcha powder. Enjoy!

Common Questions & Swaps

  • Toast your coconut flakes in the over at 325ºF for 5 minutes, keeping a close eye on it – coconut can burn fast!
  • If you only have shredded or grated coconut on hand, use it instead of the flakes, but make sure to toast only if it is unsweetened.
  • If all the coconut you have on hand is sweetened, do not toast it.
  • If your dates are hard and dry, add them to a bowl with boiling water and let soften for 15 minutes. Drain the water, give the dates a squeeze with your hands, and use as indicated in the recipe.
  • Do not replace coconut oil with another oil. 
  • You can replace all the chia and sesame seeds with 4 tablespoons of hemp, giving you 6 tablespoons of hemp total in this recipe.
