Snowmen Coconut Energy Balls

Then of course you roll in desiccated coconut and top one ball on top of the other to create that snowman look. Once set you can create a little face using goji berries for the nose and cacao nibs or chocolate chips for eyes.


  • 250g medjool dates
  • 50g oats
  • 60g walnuts
  • 20g cashew butter
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 50g desiccated coconut
  • Handful of goji berries
  • Handful of cacao nibs or chocolate chips
Prep Time


  1. Add the oats and walnuts to the food processor and blitz into a flour.

  2. Pit the dates and add them to the food processor along with the cashew butter, coconut oil, water and cinnamon. Blend until a sticky mixture forms.

  3. Pour the desiccated coconut into a bowl.

  4. Roll the sticky mixture into balls – make half the balls slightly smaller than the other half and roll in the desiccated coconut. Place the smaller balls on top of the bigger balls to create the snowmen then place them in the freezer for 1 hour to set.

  5. Remove from the freezer. Stick a goji berry in the middle of the top ball to create the snowman nose and the cacao nibs/chocolate chips above to create the eyes.

  6. Enjoy!

My love and passion for vegan food was initially inspired by health problems. After being diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and coeliac disease as well as suffering with mental health issues, I realised my diet needed to change drastically. My symptoms were affecting every area of my life, so I began to look at what food I was putting into my body and educated myself on how nutrition has a direct impact on how we feel, physically and mentally.
