Peppermint Chocolate Energy Bites 

  • Yield: 26 servings
  • Serving Size: 1 bite 


  •  1 cup (99g) chocolate protein powder 
  • 2/3 cup + 1 Tbsp (207g total) natural almond butter 
  •  3 Tbsp (52g) honey 
  • 1 Tbsp (8g) cocoa powder 
  • 1⁄4 tsp salt 
  • 1⁄4 tsp peppermint extractOptional chocolate candy cane drizzle: 
  • 1⁄4 cup (54g) dark chocolate chips, melted 
  • 1⁄2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1⁄4 cup (41g) crushed candy canes (~3 canes)


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix all ingredients (except for optional drizzle ingredients) in a large bowl. Don’t be afraid to use your hands!
  3. Roll the dough into 1 Tbsp balls and place onto the baking sheet.
    • The dough may be slightly crumbly. Squeeze the dough ball in your hands, and it should stick together! If not, add a tablespoon of almond butter or honey. 
  4. Place bites into the fridge while you make the drizzle.
    • If you are skipping the drizzle, enjoy!

For the drizzle 

  1. Melt chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe dish for 60 seconds. If not fully melted, continue to microwave in 15-second intervals until melted.
  2. Stir in coconut oil.
  3. Using a small whisk or fork, drizzle the chocolate onto bites.
  4. Immediately sprinkle with crushed candy cane pieces (the chocolate will start to harden quickly if the bites are cold!). 


  • These are a great balanced grab-and-go snack! 
  • Add another tablespoon of almond butter or honey if the dough is too crumbly to stick together. 
  •  Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. 
  • Freeze for up to 2 months in an air-tight container.
