Blueberry Lemon Energy Squares

Prep Time

5 minutes

Cooking Time



16 squares


1 1/2 cups cashews
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

1/2 cup dried blueberries
3/4 cup pitted medjool dates, roughly chopped
2 T. lemon juice
1 tsp pure vanilla extract


Add all ingredients to your food processor and blend until ingredients form a course meal.

Pour mixture, even out and press firmly into an 8x8 pan. Cut into 16 squares. Store in fridge.


My teenage son loves these and eats 4 of them pretty much every school day for breakfast. Quick to make!  Healthy ingredients that keep him filled until lunch. 

Alternatively, instead of making squares, you could roll them into balls. I find that's a bit more labor intensive than is necessary. It's all about simplicity!
