Healthy Lemon Balls

We did it again. Everyone is loving these healthy dessert recipes, so we put together one more for you.


Lemon Energy Bites



Author: Melissa Griffiths


  • 1 cup dates
  • 1 cup cashews
  • ½ cup shredded coconut (I like this brand of unsweetened shredded coconut)
  • zest from one large lemon
  • juice from one large lemon
  • pinch of sea salt



  1. Add all of the ingredients to the bowl of your food processor and blend until the nuts are well chopped and a thick “dough” starts to form, about 3-5 minutes of processing. If the ingredients are chopped into super small pieces but the dough isn’t coming together, try adding a teaspoon of water at a time (up to a tablespoon or two) to encourage everything to come together.
  2. When the ingredients are well incorporated, remove the blade from the food processor. Take 1 large tablespoon of the “dough” and roll it into a ball in between your hands. Repeat with remaining dough. Sprinkle with a little shredded coconut if desired. Keep the balls in the fridge for up to a month or in the freezer much longer.
