Recipe: Coconut, Lime, Macadamia Energy Bites

My gosh these are good! I’m a real lime person, meaning I love limes! So, no doubt these energy bites are right up my alley.

There’s enough lime juice and zest to really kick these up a notch. You’ll be taken away to some tropical island with a cold cerveza in your hand rather than the reality of slogging through a portage, or hiking all day on the trail.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almonds, unsalted
  • 1/2 cup cashews, unsalted
  • 1/2 cup unsalted macadamia nuts
  • 11 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 tsp good quality vanilla
  • Juice of 1 lime (or more depending on your love of lime flavour)
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • A good pinch or two of sea salt
  • Shredded coconut

Directions

  1. Add almonds, cashews and macadamia nuts into a food processor and blend until you get a crumbly mixture.
  2. Add dates, vanilla, lime juice, lime zest and salt. Pulse until all blended together.
  3. The mixture should be sticky enough that you can form balls that are bite-sized and roll them in shredded coconut.
  4. Chill for 30 minutes or put in the freezer until you’re ready to eat them.
