These peanut butter and jelly energy balls are the best ever snack! Made with dates, peanut butter and stuffed with strawberry jelly. They’re so delicious!




  1. Line a baking pan with parchment paper and place about 15 small dollops (about 1 tsp each) of jam on the pan.
  2. Place in the freezer for at least 2 hours to let the jam firm up.
  3. Blend the Medjool dates, oats, flax seeds, shredded coconut, peanut butter, vanilla extract, cinnamon and salt in a food processor until combined. The mixture should be sticky when you press it between your fingers. If it’s not, add a few more dates.
  4. Using your hand scoop out some of the dough and flatten into a disk shape.
  5. Remove the jam from the freezer and place a dollop in the center of the disk.
  6. Fold up the edges sealing the jam in the center, (like folding a dumpling) then roll between your hands to form a ball.
  7. Repeat the process for each energy bite.
  8. Store in the fridge in an airtight container.


Don’t add too much jam to the center of the bites otherwise, it may spill out! I use this cookie scoop to create uniform energy balls
