Prep. Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Servings: 10-15


  • 330g Raw whole almonds
  • 1 cup dates – pitted and soaked in 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 3 generous tablespoons of Phyto Pro Raw Cacao superfood powder
  • 1/3 cup Phyto Pro THRIVE Vanilla protein powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon – optional
  • Zest of 1/2 orange
  • 2 tbsp Phyto Pro Maca Root superfood powder
  • Pinch sea salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Phyto Pro Hemp Heart superfood seeds for rolling
  • Desiccated coconut and anything else you like for rolling


  • Pulse almonds in a food processor with the cinnamon, cacao, orange zest, maca, salt and pea protein powder until crumbly.
  • Add the dates and vanilla and blend until it comes together. You may need to add a tbsp of fresh orange juice.
  • The dough should come together and not be too sticky. Refrigerate for a while if the mixture is too sticky.
  • Place your various ingredients for rolling the balls in on a plate – desiccated coconut, goji berries, hemp hearts or freeze dried berry powders.
  • Using a teaspoon, scoop up enough dough to make a ball of your preferred size, shape in your hands and roll in your topping of choice.
  • Keep these Chocolate Orange Protein Energy Bites in a sealed Tupperware and in the fridge for snacking or for lunch boxes. They should keep for up to 2 weeks.
