Sweet Potato Energy Balls

Get your tastebuds ready because they’re in for a treat!

These Sweet Potato Energy Balls taste like ice-cream and are made with 5 simple healthy ingredients.

One or two of these energy balls will keep you going for a good couple of hours because they’re packed with healthy fats from almond butter and coconut oil.

For this recipe, I’m using a nut butter I found at Trader Joe’s which is a blend of walnuts, pecans, macadamias and almonds. It’s 100% peanut and sugar-free, but feel free to use any nut butter of your choice. 

These Sweet Potato Energy Balls are great to enjoy as a snack on the go and/or help you take control of sweet cravings in a healthy way.

You know…when you want something sweet after your meals? Instead of going for a sugar-loaded candy bar, grab one of these sweet potato energy balls to crush down your cravings. 

I hope you enjoy this healthy snack as much as my friends and I do!

Sweet Potato Energy Balls 


  • 1 cup cooked sweet potato 
  • 1 tbsp almond butter 
  • Pinch of sea salt 
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I like this soy-free brand)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil 


  1. In a large bowl, mash potato using a fork until a smooth paste has formed. 
  2. Mix in almond butter, or any other nut butter of your choice. 
  3. Transfer bowl in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  4. Line a dish, cutting board or cookie tray with a sheet of parchment paper. 
  5. Start forming small balls with the sweet potato mixture. You can use your hands or a small ice-cream scoop. Form about 12 balls. Transfer them to the freezer for about 5-10 minutes. 
  6. In a small bowl, add chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave for 1 minute. 
  7. Dip sweet potato balls in melted chocolate, place parchment paper and keep in the freezer. 

Keep these sweet potato energy balls frozen and thaw them for 3-5 minutes when you’re ready to enjoy them.
