These delicious little coconut date energy balls make the perfect quick snack or dessert any time of day.




  1. Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and process into a thick, sticky dough you can press between your fingers.
  2. Use your hands to roll the dough into 15 balls.
  3. Store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or freezer for up to 3 months.


It’s important to use soft, moist dates in this recipe to bind everything together. If you only have dry dates, you can soak them in hot water for 15 minutes then drain well before using in the recipe.

If you blend everything up and it’s not sticking together, add 1 tsp of water, blend again and repeat as needed until it does. Just a splash of water should do the trick, and only if needed, if your dates were nice and juicy you shouldn’t have a problem!

The cashews can be substituted with pecans, walnuts or almonds.
