Tart Cherry Coconut Energy Balls (No Bake!)

5 from 5 reviews

Ingredients

Scale
  • 6 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/2 cup dried Montmorency tart cherries
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded coconut flakes
  • 3/4 cup unsalted cashews (can use raw or roasted)
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • Pinch fine sea salt

Instructions

  1. Add dates to your food processor and process until broken up into pea-sized bits.
  2. Add in coconut flakes, dried tart cherries, cashews, extract and a pinch of salt.
  3. Process until well-combined. This will take 3-5 minutes. Mixture should just start to come together into a large ball, but be careful not to over-process as the oil will start to separate from mixture.
  4. Roll the mixture into 12 tablespoon-sized balls.
  5. Let firm up in refrigerator or freezer before serving. You can always (optionally) drizzle your bites with melted dark chocolate or roll them in additional shredded coconut flakes.

Notes

Storage: For best results, lay balls on a cookie sheet and place into the freezer for 2 hours, or in the refrigerator until they firm up. Then, transfer into a gallon-size freezer-safe bag and store in the refrigerator or the freezer!
