Key Lime Energy Balls
These key lime energy balls are made with almonds, cashews, coconut, lime juice and dates. They're a breeze to whip up and a great snack to meal prep for the week.
- 1/3 cup almonds
- 1/4 cup cashews
- 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1 cup about 10 medjool dates, pitted
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- zest from one lime
- 2 Tablespoons lime juice
- pinch of sea salt
Process nuts: Place almonds, cashews and coconut into food processor fitted with the S-blade and pulse until everything is chopped into small pieces. Place nut mixture in a bowl and set aside.
Process dates: Put dates into the food processor and pulse until a paste forms. The dates will probably form into a sticky ball. If they do, break about the ball a bit with your hands.
Add nuts and coconut back into the processor with the dates and pulse until well combined.
Add coconut oil, lime juice, lime zest and salt. Pulse a few more times, until they’re just incorporated.
Form balls: Once mixture is combined, use your hands to form the dough into balls, using about 1 Tablespoon of dough for each ball. Enjoy right away or store for later.
To store: Store any leftovers in the fridge with parchment paper between them for 1-2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
