  • 100g dried coconut pieces or shredded coconut (of which 45g is for coating the balls, if desired) *
  • 45g chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice (40ml)
  • Pinch of salt


  • In a food processor, blend the dates into chunks.
  • Add the cashews, 55g of coconut, chia seeds and process until well combined.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and blend for approximately 30 more seconds until sticky clumps begin to form.
  • Shape the mixture into balls.
  • Roll in shredded coconut, if desired

*Coconut pieces work perfectly well in the mixture and make it slightly chunkier. If the balls are to be rolled in coconut, the pieces need to be shredded in the food processor.
