Coconut Lime Energy Bites

I originally came into contact with these delicious little nuggets during the Market to Market Iowa run.   Sara made a few different energy bites for us to snack on and these little guys won me over.   They are a nice switch-up from the traditional energy bites that I make with peanut butter, honey and oats.

Lime and Coconut = Light, refreshing and super easy to make.

And makes me want a vodka.


I found this recipe on Spoonful of Flavor.  The only change I made was I used regular limes, because I have no idea what makes a key lime different AND I am fairly confident you can’t find one in Nebraska.   The recipe turned out just fine.



  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1 1/2 cups dates, pitted
  • Juice from 3 limes
  • Unsweetened coconut


1. Add the almonds and cashews to the bowl of a food processor and pulse.



2. Add the dates and lime juice.  Pulse until the dates are finely chopped and the mixture starts to clump.



3. Shape the mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls. Roll in coconut and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
