  • 1 cup cashew raw unsalted
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1 teaspoon baobab powder
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest zest from 2 lemons
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice juice from 2 lemons
  • 2 tablespoon marple syrup or honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Add all ingridients in the food processor and process for few minutes until dough is formed.
  2. Check texture by pinching the dough between your fingers. It should be sticky and able to keep its shape. If the mixture is too dry, add more lemon juice. If the mixture is to wet, add more shredded coconut.
  3. Using a tablespoon, scoop out dough and roll between your palms to form your balls.
  4. Roll them into shredded coconut or bee pollen powder and shake off excess. Refrigerate to harden.

Recipe Notes

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until serving.
Keep the energy balls frozen up to 3 months in the freezer.
As a measure, I used a US cup (240ml).
FOR VEGAN: Omit bee pollen and use maple syrup.
