No bake, no cook, no added sugar and no oil or butter!!! These crunchy healthy energy bites are full of flavor from the goodness of dates, cornflakes and nuts!!
Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Served AsSnacks
Servings 6


  • 2 cup cornflakes
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • ¼ cup cashew nuts
  • ¼ cup almonds
  • Desiccated coconut optional


  • Crush the cornflakes with a spoon (or use clean hands; an easier method) and keep aside. Soften the dates in a microwave (if they are hard and a bit dry) for a few seconds and make a paste in a blender or food processor.
  • Chop the nuts coarsely (you may make them into fine crumbs or leave them coarsely chopped like I did, as I like to bite into bits of nuts in the ladoos!!).
  • Mix all 3 in a bowl with a spoon or easier yet, use your hand to mix and knead them into a well-incorporated mixture. Take small portions of the mixture in your hands and roll them into small balls or ladoos.
  • For a variation (it looks good too), you can roll them in desiccated coconut. Bite into one of them (well, you deserve this healthy treat!!), serve to your family and store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.


  • You can add mini chocolate chips in them as an additional treat for kids.
  • Along with or instead, you can use pistachios or even peanuts in the energy bites.
  • For an additional coconutty flavor, stir in a little desiccated coconut in the mixture before making them into balls or ladoos.
