Cocoa and Peanut Butter Energy Balls

 8 balls  10 min prep, 10 min cooking  49.9g / ball

Sweet to perfection, these energy balls were a success on a backcountry ski trip! They are low-fat and are packed with carbohydrates for energy during the long grueling skin up sections.


  • ¾ cup (175 ml) chopped dates
  • ½ cup (125 ml) water
  • 1 cup (250 ml) old-fashioned oats
  • ⅓ cup (80 ml) powdered peanut butter*
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) cocoa

* I used the PB2 powdered peanut butter.


  1. Bring dates and water to boil and let simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, mix the dry ingredients: oats, powdered peanut butter and cocoa.
  3. Add the dates and mix well.
  4. Roll into balls.
  5. Pack for your next adventure!
