To make these healthy date walnut energy balls, all you need is a food processor and 3 ingredients. 


  • 2 cups Walnuts 

  • 1 cup Shredded unsweetened coconut

  • 2 cups Medjool dates, pitted


  1. In a large food processor fitted with an “S” blade, process the walnuts and coconut until crumbly. 
  2. Add in the dates and process again until a sticky, uniform batter is formed. You don’t want to over process, or the batter will become oily, so process until crumbly, but sticky when pressed between your fingers.
  3. Using an ice cream scoop, form balls by pressing and rolling between your hands. Arrange them on a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper, then place in the fridge or freezer to set for at least 30 minutes before serving. Store the balls in a sealed container in the fridge for up to a week, or in the freezer for an even longer shelf life.
