These healthy and raw Almond and Cocao Energy Bites are a snap to make and require no cooking! A perfect pre- or post-workout snack, portable pick-me-up, or healthy sweet treat.


  • 1/2 cup raw almond butter
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey (agave for vegan)
  • 1/4 cup ground flax
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup raw cocao
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate mini chips
  • Generous pinch of sea salt


  1. In a large bowl, combine the coconut oil, almond butter, and honey. Stir to mix very well.
  2. Stir or whisk in the cocao and combine until completely mixed with no lumps.
  3. Add in the flax, oats, chia seeds, and sea salt. Stir (or mix with your hands) until the mixture is combined well. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. If the mixture is too wet to work with, place in the freezer for 5 minutes before rolling.
  5. Roll the mixture into 1″ energy bites. Place in the freezer until firm, then store in an airtight container in the fridge.*


*Keep in the fridge for a week. Store in the freezer for a month and defrost bites as you need them. These thaw quickly.
