These no-bake energy balls are one of our favorite healthy snacks! Made with dairy-free chocolate chips and certified gluten-free oat flour, they're both vegan and gluten-free.



  • In a food processor, place the oat flour, walnuts, almond butter, dates, vanilla, water, and salt. Pulse until the mixture sticks together when pinched. If it’s too crumbly, pulse in more water, 1 teaspoon at a time.
  • Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the chocolate chips. Use a 2-tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop and roll into balls.
  • Store extra energy balls in the fridge. They also freeze well. To thaw, leave them at room temperature until soft.


**Look for creamy almond butter with a smooth consistency to make this recipe, not the dry, stiff stuff that you might find at the bottom of a jar. 
*If your dates are hard, soak them in hot water for 10 minutes.
