Turtle Energy Bites

  • Author: Ansley Beutler
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 12 Energy Balls 1x


Deliciously sweet & nutty date balls wrapped around a salty dollop of homemade caramel smack-dab in the middle. These cute little energy bites make the ultimate on-the-go snack! They’re sweet yet salty and give off some serious chocolate covered turtle vibes.




  1. Place all ingredients except the caramel sauce in a food processor. Pulse until a large ball forms and no large chunks remain

  2. Using a spoon, scoop out about a tablespoon of the mixture and pat into a disk like shape. Do the same with another tablespoon of the mixture and set aside. Press your thumb into the middle of one of the disks to create a divot. Drizzle caramel sauce to fill the divot. Then lay the other disk over top, pinch the sides to close in the caramel and gently roll into a ball form. Repeat with remaining mixture

  3. Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container for up to a week
