Raw Chocolate Orange Energy Bites


Servings 16 energy bites
Author Ashley


  • 5-6 tablespoons nut and seed butter
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 2 tablespoons protein powder of choice (I use pea protein powder)
  • 2 teaspoons maca powder
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
  • zest of 1 small orange
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds


  1. Add all the ingredients to the same food processor used to make your nut and seed butter. 

  2. Pulse a few times, then blitz on high until everything is well combined and blended. The mixture will be quite crumbly, but should hold together when pinched. Additional nut butter can be added back into the food processor if needed.

  3. Line an 8x8 inch baking pan with wax paper. Transfer the energy bite mix into the pan and press down until evenly spread. Refrigerate for about 2 hour or until firm.

  4. Slice up your energy bites and enjoy! These can be stored in the fridge for up to two weeks.
