Recipe: Paleo Coconut Lime Energy Balls

Saturday, January 24, 2015

Paleo Energy Balls. Cue the jokes about deflate-gate, the Patriots and Tom Brady's claim that "he likes the balls the way they are," cuz let's be honest, I'm sure Tommy would like these balls too and I promise they are not deflated.... Okay enough with the corny football jokes, back to the cooking.

If you're new around here, Adam's biggest issue with the paleo lifestyle is the lack of snacks. Back in the day, pre-paleo, snacks were abundant. Chips and salsa, cereal, popcorn, you name it, Adam loved it. Paleo makes snacking a little more difficult, so I knew when I found this recipe, it would be an instant hit! These are so easy to make, and so damn delicious. Next time I might even get a little crazy and press them into bars! (They might just be better than Lara Bars, can you believe it?!) We finished these babies off in 4 days, so maybe next time I'll double the recipe! 

Enjoy peeps! I promise yo'll have energy for hours after eating one of these! 

Ingredients: 
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1 1/2 cups Medjool dates, pitted
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
How to Make: 
  1. Add the almonds and cashews to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until nuts are finely chopped (but do not pulse too long, you do not want the nuts to turn into a paste). 
  2. Add the dates, lime juice and coconut. Pulse until the dates are finely chopped and the mixture starts to clump. 
  3. Shape the mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls. 
  4. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
make sure you don't over process! 
Enjoy everyone, they're amazing!
