Date Energy Snack Trio

Dates are a very common main ingredient for energy snacks. This is because of the many nutritional benefits of dates. Date paste provides all of the same goodness but is much easier to use in recipes. We rolled our date energy snacks in coconut, sesame seeds, and cocoa powder, but you can get creative and use whatever ingredients you have on hand!

Date Energy Snack Trio made with DateME ready to use date paste

Ingredients

  • 1 cup DateME Date Paste
  • 2 Tbsp. ground flaxseed
  • 1 Tbsp. almond butter
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 Tbsp. unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2-3 Tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 2-3 Tbsp. cocoa powder

Directions

  1. In a bowl, mix together the date paste, flaxseed, almond butter, and vanilla extract. If your almond butter is unsalted, add a small pinch of salt. Shape the paste into 1” balls.
  2. Place the coconut, sesame seeds, and cocoa powder in three shallow balls. Split up the date balls so that ⅓ of the balls get rolled in each topping. Gently press the ball into the topping as you roll them. Place the balls on a parchment covered tray and refrigerate for 30 minutes before enjoying.
  3. Note: You can roll the date ball snacks in anything you’d like. For more variety, try crushed nuts or cacao nibs!
