LEMON CAKE ENERGY BALLS/BITES
These Lemon Cake Energy Balls are a healthy snack choice that tastes like a little bit of heaven! Store these energy balls in the freezer for an easy grab and go snack that is packed with protein, chia seeds, and tons of flavor.
2 cups chopped raw cashews
8 Medjool dates, pitted*
1 tablespoon lemon zest (about 1 lemon)
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
¾ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
3 tablespoon chia seeds
Pinch of salt
Place cashews in a high speed blender and process on high for about 1 minute or until your cashews have turned into cashew meal.
Then, add in the rest of the ingredients (other than the chia seeds) and blend on high for 2-3 minutes or until you’ve formed a sticky dough. Add in chia seeds and pulse until combined.
Once your dough is sticky, use a tablespoon cookie scoop to form truffles. If you find your dough isn’t sticky enough to form your truffles, add more lemon juice by the teaspoon. Store in fridge or freeze half for Week 4 if following the meal plan. -Molly L.
