Lemon Energy Balls

These are a delicious snack to make for yourself or your kids. With lots of healthy fats and vitamin C, these are perfect to keep you going through the day. I like to have some as a mid-afternoon snack. Make them on a Sunday night, so you have them ready for the week ahead.


  • 8-10 Medjool dates (use more if you want them sweeter)
  • 1 cup of cashews
  • 1 tbsp of cashew butter
  • 1 tbsp of coconut oil
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • Juice of ½ a lemon
  • Desiccated coconut


  1. Add the cashews to a food processor and blend until broken down.
  2. Add in the nut butter, coconut oil, chia seeds and blend. Then add the juice and zest.
  3. Finally add in the dates and blend until mixture comes together and sticky.
  4. Roll into balls and coat in desiccated coconut.
  5. Place in the fridge for at least one hour.
  6. Enjoy as a snack through the day.
  7. Keep in the fridge for a week or in the freezer for a month (if they last that long!)
