Coconut Lemon Energy Balls

These energy balls are grain-free, easy to prepare and are loaded with nutrients and healthy fats from our ghee, coconut, chia seeds, and cashews. The dates in this recipe provide sweetness along with antioxidants and fibre. For an added boost of protein, we love adding a scoop of collagen. Make a batch and have them on hand for easy snacking during the week!
