A paleo and Whole30 compliant snack made with simple ingredients. Pistachio and strawberry flavor in every bite.




  1. Add the pitted dates and pistachios to a small food processor or mini chopper. Pulse or blend until the nuts have broken down and the mixture is well combined
  2. Then add the freeze-dried strawberries and pulse for 5-10 seconds, just until the strawberries have broken down and are incorporated into the date/nut mixture
  3. Scoop out a tablespoon at a time and press the mixture together, then gently form into a ball. These will be slightly crumbly, so rolling into a ball may not work as well as pressing and forming, in order to keep the mixture together. Wash hands every 2-3 balls to ensure the mixture doesn’t stick to your hands as you go
  4. Keep in the refrigerator until ready to eat. Yields 12 balls – double the recipe if needed


The mixture for these energy balls is more ‘crumbly’ than some other recipes for energy balls using dates, so be sure to form the balls carefully, pressing the mixture together first. You may not be able to roll the mixture into a ball like rolling play-doh, so pressing together then gently forming into ball shape is key.
