Cherry Chocolate Chip Energy Balls

These Cherry Chocolate Chip Energy Balls require just seven ingredients and one bowl. (No food processor needed!) You can whip these up in no time and freeze them for weeks ahead. Perfect for road trips, snacking, and just all-around great to have on hand. No-bake, gluten-free and vegan-friendly. 

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 24 energy balls 1x
  • Scale:




  1. In a large bowl combine oats, cinnamon, chia seeds, chopped dried cherries and mini chocolate chips.
  2. Add in nut/seed butter and honey; use sturdy spatula or spoon to combine. You may need to work the mixture together with your hands to fully combine at the end.
  3. Place bowl in freezer for about 10 minutes (or fridge for 20 minutes). The cold mixture will make forming the energy balls a lot easier.
  4. Using a 1/2 round tablespoon, scoop mixture into rounded balls and roll between palms to shape. You should get roughly 24 rounded tablespoon size balls.
