Are energy balls actually healthy?

Energy balls like these combine protein, fiber, and healthy fats making them the perfect, convenient snack! We recommend making your own energy balls during meal prep to help you eat clean versus buying overly-processed options in the store.

If you need a store-bought option, check out our allergy-friendly snacks or our favorite protein bars!

Why We Love These Tropical Energy Bites

  • They’re super easy and quick to make!
  • You can customize them with your favorite nut and protein powder.
  • They’re cheaper than buying store-bought bars or protein balls.
  • You can make a big batch and freeze them!

Pineapple Energy Bites - Healthy Go To Snack

These bites are made using only 5 ingredients with 5 minutes or less prep time.

While we love them before a workout or on-the-go, they’re also a great school snack for your kiddos too!

Why Each Ingredient Matters

Using walnuts and almond butter these bites are full of healthy fats to keep you feeling satiated. Coconut flour adds the perfect texture and packs them full of fiber.

Added protein powder packs them with protein to keep you full until that next meal. The final touch to add sweetness to satisfy your afternoon sweet tooth is dried pineapple.

These bites are gluten free, vegan, and paleo friendly.

They make 12 servings a batch, providing you

with a sweet and satisfying treat to grab for your afternoon snack or even provide the perfect pre-workout bite.

So next time you find yourself snacking on chips and chocolate, make these grab and go bites instead.

How would you count these on the Ultimate Portion Fix?

I would count these as 1 yellow, 1/2 a red, and 1 blue. You could also have them on the 21 Day Fix meal plan or 2B Mindset!

  1. I totally thought these were like deep-fried when I saw the photo, hahah!! Guess that’s the chunk in me :D
    I love these kinds of energy balls though, yum, so easy and so healthy, and my kids go crazy for them. I haven’t made a pineapple one yet though, so I’ll definitely be making some of these!

  2. I’m interested in trying this pineapple protein ball recipe as well as some of the others. What could I replace the protein powder with? Thanks in advance for your answer, Anna

    1. You may could use another brand of protein powder (even plant-based would work), but you really need it in order for the nutritional information and consistency of the balls.
