These no-bake Coconut Lemon Energy Bites are my latest obsession. They’re the perfect way to satisfy the desire for something sweet, while also giving your body a boost of blood sugar stabilizing fats and fiber thanks to the cashews, coconut and chia seeds.
I shared a version of these in the past made with lime, but this coconut + lemon combination is the new winner in my opinion. They’re also ridiculously simple to make which is always a plus!
Healthy Coconut Lemon Energy Bites
1.5 cups raw cashews
1 cup pitted dates
½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
¼ cup chia seeds
Pinch of salt
Juice and zest of 1 large lemon
Pulse cashews in a few processor a few times until chopped.
Add dates, coconut and chia seeds and process until well combined. This will look like a crumble and will not be sticky at this point.
Add the lemon zest + juice and mi until the ingredients are well combined and come together to form a dough.
With damp hands (or a scooper!) roll into small balls. Then roll each ball in extra shredded coconut.
Store energy bites in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. You can also freezer for up to 3 months.
