Our Lemon Energy Bites are the ultimate blend of nutrition and flavor to invigorate your day. We’ll delve into the goodness of these energy-packed treats, exploring their ingredients, benefits, and how to make them right in your own kitchen.

The Nutritional Powerhouse

Raw Almonds and Pumpkin Seeds:

The base of our energy bites consists of raw almonds and pumpkin seeds, which provide a hearty dose of essential nutrients, including protein, healthy fats, and antioxidants. Almonds are rich in vitamin E and magnesium, while pumpkin seeds are packed with zinc and iron, making them a dynamic duo for overall health.

Organic Lemons:

The vibrant essence of organic lemons adds a refreshing twist to our energy bites. Not only do they contribute a zesty flavor, but lemons are also loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants, promoting immune health and aiding digestion.

Chia Seeds:

Renowned for their omega-3 fatty acids and fiber content, Chia seeds are a superfood addition to our recipe. These tiny seeds pack a nutritional punch, offering sustained energy and supporting heart health.

Medjool Dates:

Nature’s candy, Medjool dates provide natural sweetness to our energy bites without the need for added sugars. They are also a great source of fiber and essential minerals like potassium, magnesium, and calcium.

Himalayan Pink Salt:

A pinch of Himalayan pink salt not only enhances the flavor profile but also adds trace minerals to our recipe. Unlike processed table salt, Himalayan pink salt retains its natural mineral content, supporting electrolyte balance and hydration.

Unsweetened Finely Shredded Coconut:

For a satisfying texture, we incorporate unsweetened finely shredded coconut into our energy bites. Coconut adds a hint of tropical flair while providing healthy fats and fiber.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 3/4 cup raw almonds
  • 1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • Zest + juice from three organic lemons
  • 1 tablespoon Chia seeds
  • 1 ½ cups Medjool dates, pitted
  • Pinch of Himalayan pink salt
  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened finely shredded coconut

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Ingredients: Gather all the necessary ingredients listed above.

  2. Combine Nuts and Seeds: Place the raw almonds and pumpkin seeds into your Vitamix or high-powered blender. Pulse until finely chopped, but be cautious not to over-blend, as we want to maintain some texture.

  3. Add Remaining Ingredients: To the blender, add the Chia seeds, pitted Medjool dates, pinch of Himalayan pink salt, lemon zest, and lemon juice.

  4. Blend Until Formed: Blend the mixture until it starts to come together into a sticky dough-like consistency.

  5. Form the Bites: Transfer the mixture onto a plate and shape it into a square. Use a knife to score 12 even pieces, then roll each piece into a ball between your palms.

  6. Coat with Coconut: Roll each ball into the unsweetened finely shredded coconut until evenly coated, pressing gently to adhere.

  7. Chill and Enjoy: Store the Lemon Chia Energy Bites in the freezer or refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to firm up. Once chilled, they’re ready to enjoy!
