15 Paleo Energy Ball Recipes (2024)

Have you tried an energy ball recipe yet? They’re really popular right now because they’re healthy but taste like dessert.

Most energy ball recipes are made with a base of dates blended in a food processor (similar to Larabars). They’re called energy balls because they’re packed with energizing, protein-packed, and antioxidant-rich ingredients. Energy balls are perfect for afternoon snacking.

Energy balls don’t require any baking and they’re bite-sized. Plus, you can make unlimited varieties by mixing up the ingredients.

I’ve put together my top 15 energy ball recipes for this post. All these recipes are raw, paleo, gluten-free, and vegan.
