  • food processor


  • 2 cups sliced California strawberries
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • cup raw cashews
  • cup raw almonds
  • 1 Tbsp flax seed
  • 4 medjool dates pitted
  • 10 dried figs stem removed
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 cup unsweetened toasted coconut for rolling


  • In a food processor, combine all the ingredients (except the toasted coconut for rolling) and pulse until well minced and combined. The mixture should look like the texture of cookie dough.
  • Let the mixture sit for a few minutes (if you can spare the time, let it sit overnight to let those oats really soak up the moisture.)
  • Using a small ice cream scoop or tablespoon, scoop rounded bite-sized balls about 1½ inches in diameter and roll them in the coconut until well coated. They are ready to eat or take on the go! Store these protein-packed babies in the fridge for up to 5 days, or freeze them and pull a few out whenever you need a quick filling snack on your way out the door.


Kitchen Equipment Required: food processor, small ice cream scoop
Technique Tip: Slice your strawberries before measuring them; whole berries will take up more room and you won’t have an accurate reading.
Swap Option: Swap out your favorite nuts and/or seeds instead of the almonds, cashews and coconut. Pistachio would be delicious!
Why I love This Recipe: These little protein-packed bites of strawberry goodness are guilt-free and keep me going pre- and post- workout!
