Coconut Cashew Energy Bites

  • recipe image cover





These sweet treats have zero processed sugar. When I had them the first time, I could not believe that these did not have any added sugar in them.


  1. Put cashews in a food processor and pulsate for 15 seconds
  2. Add pitted dates, 1/4 cup coconut flakes, apple sauce and water. Process for a minute or until the mixture comes together and no big nuts or dates remain.
  3. With a tablespoon scoop out the mixture and roll in between hands to form a ball.
  4. Put remaining shredded coconut in a bowl, and then roll the ball in the coconut.
  5. Refrigerate for an hour and then serve.Store in refrigerator.
