Maple Cacao Energy Balls

These maple cacao energy balls are the perfectly satisfying snack. With only whole foods, healthy fats & loads of nutrients, these are the perfect snack to make for any summertime adventure. Get creative with this one and experiment with different ingredients and coatings! 


  • 8oz pitted dates, soaked 
  • 2 cups Maple Pancake Grain Free Granola
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup 
  • 3 tablespoons coconut butter 
  • 3 tablespoons cacao nibs 
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes (optional) 


  1. Soak dates for at least 3 hours. 
  2. Combine dates, Paleonola, maple syrup and coconut butter in a food processor until well combined and the appropriate texture to form balls with. 
  3. Add cacao nibs and pulse a few times to mix, but do not over process as you want the nibs to stay whole. 
  4. Wet your hands and carefully roll the mixture into 15-18 balls. 
  5. If using, pour coconut into a small bowl. Gently roll all or some of the balls until fully coated. 
  6. These are best chilled and can be stored in the fridge. 

"Like a healthy Cinnamon Toast Crunch"

Somehow Paleonola tastes exactly like Cinnamon Toast Crunch even thought there is 6 grams of sugar!

"Love at First Bite!"

The quality and taste totally surpassed my expectations! I add the Paleonola to plain Greek yogurt with fresh fruit and its better than dessert without all of the carbs! Also, there are so many flavors so it keeps it interesting!

"Best grain free granola!"

This is hands down the best grain free option out there! I love rotating between original, maple pancake and the new blueberry. Super great with almond or coconut yogurt. Product is consistently delicious and delivers every time! Travels and packs well- I always take it with me on the go: planes, trains and automobiles!

"Everyday solid breakfast"

I have been eating Paleonola for breakfast regularly for years, since I started on the Paleo diet. All the flavors are delicious, and the new Cinnamon Blueberry is a welcome change of pace, although I do add fresh blueberries, as I do with all my Paleonola breakfasts.
