Chai Spiced Energy Bites

Author: Lorie Yarro


  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup raw pecans
  • 10 medjool dates pitted
  • 1 cardamom seed remove pod
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Dash of sea salt
  • Dash of black pepper optional


  • Combine almonds, pecans and cardamom seed in food processor. Process until almonds and pecans become a small grain. If you over process they will become more flour like which can still work, but I like a little crunch.
  • Add dates, cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Process until all the dates are fully mixed in broken down. It should form almost a dough-like look up against the sides of the processor. If it seems too dry, add a touch of water.
  • Roll into balls and store in the refrigerator.


Note, if using ground cardamom, I would start very light with maybe ⅛ teaspoon and then add to taste.
