Coconut Energy Balls

Coconut Energy Balls


  • 1 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup almond or cashew butter
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp hemp hearts optional
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup semi sweet or dark chocolate chips
  • up to 1 Tbsp coconut oil


  1. In a medium bowl, combine coconut flakes, melted coconut oil, almond (or cashew) butter, chia seeds, hemp heart (if using), and vanilla.
  2. Form into 1 inch balls (I used my cookie scoop and then rolled them with my hands to make them round). Place in freezer for 5-10 minutes to harden.
  3. Melt chocolate and up to 1 Tbsp coconut oil in double boiler or in microwave. Dip coconut balls in melted chocolate. Use leftover chocolate to drizzle over coconut balls. (A full tablespoon of coconut oil made my melted chocolate too didn't coat the balls as thickly as I prefer. If this is a worry, start with half a tablespoon and check your consistency).
