Chocolate Lime Energy Balls

  • Author: Sue
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: Up to 20 balls depending on your preferred size 1x



  • about 1.5 cups of almond pulp * (see notes)
  • 1/4 cup dessicated coconut (plus more for coating)
  • 30g raw cacao
  • 8 to 10 medjool dates
  • 50g nut butter (I used almond)
  • few drops of lime essential oil (I use Doterra)
  • zest of 1 lime (plus more for coating with coconut)
  • pinch of salt


  1. Blitz together in food processor until resembles breadcrumbs
  2. Roll into bite size balls
  3. Roll balls in a mix of coconut & freshly grated lime zest


The consistency is more fudgey & less crunchy as the pulp is slightly moist compared to blitzing a cup or so of nuts.

Make sure you really squeeze your * almond pulp & let it dry out overnight before using in a recipe. If your palate likes pretty sweet you might want to add a tablespoon or so of maple syrup but I think the dates make them sweet enough.

Let me know how you go if you give them a try – just might be my go to after dinner treat!
