A client gave me this recipe years ago and I recently found it. She gave me a bunch of her "Energy Balls" as she used to call them and they were delicious. They are great for labor or nursing moms as a fast and delicious way to get some quick calories in you. They can be stored at room temperature for a few days, but will keep longer if stored in the refrigerator or freezer.
In a food processor, using the S blade, process cashews until finely ground. Add dates, vanilla and sea salt and process until combined. Next add sesame seeds and coconut as well as lemon zest. Combine until you create a dough like consistency. Roll into balls or press flat in a pan and refrigerate until firm.
