A healthy lunch box snack everyone will love... If you're looking for a healthy snack for your zero waste lunch boxes, you can't go wrong with these energy balls.



These energy balls are vegan, paleo and amazingly delicious. No one will know how healthy they are!



You can grab most of this from the bulk food store for plastic packaging-free!

  • 2 Cups Walnuts
  • 1 Cup Shredded Coconut
  • 2 Cups of pitted Medjool dates
  • 2 Tbs Organic Coconut Oil
  • 1 Tsp sea salt
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract



  1. Blend the walnuts and coconut in a food processor until crumbly.
  2. Add dates, coconut oil, vanilla and seasalt and blend until a sticky batter forms.
  3. Roll the batter into bite-sized balls and set in the fridge or freezer before serving.

I keep these in the freezer in an airtight container and they last for ages.



Roll in extra shredded coconut, cacao powder or if gifting, roll in edible glitter for a nice presentation.


These will get gobbled down by kids and adult alike. Just don't tell them the ingredients and they'll think they're snacking on decadent chocolate!
