Ingredients Needed for no bake blueberry cheesecake balls

Pitted Medjool Dates– high in fiber and antioxidants while promoting brain health; they are nature’s candy!

Coconut Flour– a delicious gluten-free option! It is high in fiber and a great source of protein, potassium, and iron.

How to make No Bake BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE BALLS

First, you will need to soak your RAW cashews for at LEAST 2 hours in hot water with a pinch of salt or at room temperature water overnight if you have time. Use any medium to small bowl you have to do this.

Second, check if your Medjool dates are soft enough to easily tear. If they are too tough, you can soak them as well in hot water for 10 minutes or so. Once they are softened, drain the water and set aside.

Next, get out your food processor. This is an essential kitchen tool to use when making energy balls. This helps blend everything nicely together to achieve a smooth texture for rolling into balls.

Add your soaked dates, cashews and walnuts to a food processor. Blending until smooth.
Next you will add in your coconut flour, vanilla extract, and any other optional add ins. Pulse until fully combined.
Once everything is blended, add in your frozen blueberries and pulse just 2-3 times.
All ingredients blended together should have this blue hue, and texture.

We don’t want to overdo the pulsing or blending, but if you desire a smoother texture, pulse more than 3 times. You will most likely need to scrape down the sides of your food processor in order to get everything incorporated, so keep a small rubber headed spatula or butter knife on standby.

After you are done blending, set your mixture aside in the fridge for 20-30 minutes in order for it to set up and make the rolling process easier.

Finally, you can take out your chilled mixture and start forming into roughly one inch balls!

Lastly, you will fill a small shallow bowl with finely shredded coconut, and roll your no bake blueberry bites in it, enough to coat.
Lastly, let sit on parchment and then store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO SOAK SEEDS & NUTS BEFORE making BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE BALLS

Generally, soaking nuts has several benefits to the both the recipe and your body:

  • Nutrient absorption – soaking nuts and seeds improves your body’s ability to absorb the vitamins and minerals.
  • Improved taste- soaking removes the dust, residue, and tannins from the skin.
  • Gooey Protein Balls – without the tannins, the consistency is so much smoother.
  • Better for digestion – removes phytic acid which causes indigestion.
  • Easier food preparation – now that the pecans are softer, they are so much easier to work with!

WHAT MAKES THESE VEGAN BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE BALLS ENERGIZING?

Energy bites (or balls) earn their name from the fact that they are loaded with simple ingredients and packed with protein, carbs, and health fats – to fuel you through the day!

There are healthy carbs in the Medjool dates and coconut flour. Also, there are healthy fats and proteins in the cashews and the coconut flour.

Not to mention, adding a scoop of collagen or protein powder of your choosing can enhance and add an amazing extra level of protein to your bites!

I do it from time to time when I know I will have a busy day filled with running errands and taking my little toddler, Oliver, to soccer practice! These bites are travel friendly, simple to store and loved by all my family.

My family also loves my No Bake Pecan Pie Energy Bites, which are also gluten free! These bites give me an added punch of protein that keeps my mom powers up to snuff!

These babies are best served on the go with little to no added fluff! You can pop them in your mouth and wash down with either a warm or iced coffee! I personally love eating these before a workout, it helps give me an added boost of energy!

HOW TO STORE YOUR BLUEBERRY ENERGY BALLS

The best way to store these little round balls of joy are in the FREEZER! Why in the freezer? Well, freezing these treats can add an almost truffle or cheesecake texture effect! SO darn good!
