Spirulina Energy Bites

I’m a big fan of energy bites, spirulina, and dates. So these are basically all of my favorite things in one! If you’re ever looking for easy snacks to make in advance - these are your new friend! Especially if you have just a little bit of a sweet tooth but don’t want so consume any refined sugars. These little guys may be addicting, but they are filling, easy, and nutritious!


Spirulina Energy Bites

Makes 24 Energy Bites


1 cup pitted dates (about 15 dates)

1/2 cup almonds

2T almond butter

3/4 cup oats

2tsp spirulina (I use Earthrise)

1/2tsp vanilla

1/4tsp salt



  • Place all ingredients into a food processor and process on high until well combined and a dough mixture has formed. It may take several minutes. Once done, it should be a thick dough that sticks together.

  • Using your hands, roll dough into small bite-sized energy bites.

  • Store in the freezer for 2-3 months or in the refrigerator for 2 weeks. I typically store mine in a large freezer-safe ziplock bag in the freezer and take them out as needed.
