Power up with these Date Almond Coconut Protein Balls. They taste like an indulgent candy bar but are packed with healthy, energy boosting ingredients instead of empty calories.


  • Medjool Dates: 2 1/2 cups (pitted)
  • raw almonds - 1 cup
  • Bob's Red Mill Protein Powder - 1/2 cup
  • unsweetened (shredded coconut - 1 cup)
  • unsweetened cocoa powder - 1/4 cup
  • flaxseeds - 1/4 cup
  • almond extract - 1/2 teaspoon
  • sea salt - 1/2 teaspoon


  1. Combine almonds and 1 tablespoon of Bob's Red Mill Protein Powder in a food processor. Pulse until the almonds are coarsely ground. Remove 3 tablespoons and set aside.
  2. Add the pitted Medjool dates, protein powder, 1/2 cup of the coconut, cocoa powder, flax seeds, almond extract, and sea salt to the food processor.

  4. Use a 2 tablespoon sized cookie scoop to measure and roll each scoop into a smooth ball.
  5. Roll each ball in the remaining coconut to coat and garnish with a small sprinkle of the ground almonds.
