Prep Time:

Serves: 10


  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 10 medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
  • zest of one lemon


  1. In a food processor, chop cashews until they’re the size of the eraser end of a pencil. Remove from food processor bowl and set aside.
  2. Place remaining ingredients in the food processor and combine until dates are fully mashed [you’ll know when it’s ready when the dates clump together in one large ball]
  3. Add cashews back in and pulse quickly, just until incorporated.
  4. Grab a scoop at a time [about a tablespoon size or a bit bigger] and roll into balls. Place completed balls on a freezer safe plate. Repeat with remaining dough.
  5. Place balls in the freezer for 5-10 minutes, remove and enjoy!
