Prepared with raw cashew nuts, unsweetened shredded coconut, dates, chia seeds, and lemon, Coconut Lemon Energy Bites are the perfect easy-to-make high energy snack! These are great pre or post workouts.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Servings 23 energy bites
1 cup raw cashew nuts
1 cup Medjool dates pitted (any other date will work too)
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup chia seeds
Zest from 1 lemon
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
Add the cashew nuts to a food processor and pulse a few times until chopped. Add the dates, 1/2 cup of shredded coconut, chia seeds and process until well combined. Add the lemon zest + juice and mix until all the ingredients come together to form a dough. With slightly damp hands, roll half tablespoon of the mixture into balls, then roll each ball in the remaining shredded coconut. Store the energy bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
If dates are dry, soak them in warm water for 30 minutes to soften and then drain.
