Why I Love This Recipe

Try making your own snacks like these easy five-ingredient Chocolate Energy Bites, naturally sweetened with whole dried dates and crunchy coconut granola.

“My four-year-old loves snacks in bar form,” says Desiree Nielsen, a registered dietitian. “We take Qi'a bars travelling or pack them as after school snacks.”

Ingredients You'll Need

• 2 cups Nature's Path Coconut Chia Granola

• 1 cup Medjool dates, pitted

• 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

• 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted

• 1/2 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut, toasted


Add granola to food processor; pulse until coarsely ground. Transfer to bowl; set aside.

Add dates to food processor; purée until only small bits remain. Add ground granola, cocoa powder and coconut oil; pulse until combined. Return to bowl; stir in coconut.

Scoop mixture into 2 tablespoonful portions. Roll into balls.

Transfer to parchment paper–lined tray; refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.
