Golden Door’s Energy Balls
These boost balls are full of great flavours.

Pear Date and Cashew Boost Balls

Makes 20


50g desiccated coconut

50g ground linseeds

100g cashew nuts

1 pear, skin on, grated

150g medjool dates

130g rice flakes

50g chia seeds

2 tablespoons mesquite powder

5 tablespoons carob powder


Combine ground coconut and ground linseed then reserve 50g for coating.

Place cashew nuts in a food processor and process until finely chopped. Add remaining ingredients and process until well combined. If the mix is too dry add a little water. Alternatively, if is too wet add a little more rice flakes.

Roll into golf ball size balls and coat with reserved coconut and linseed.

Store in the fridge for up 1-2 days or in the freezer. These balls freeze well.


Lime and Date Balls

Makes 20


½ cup almonds (any type is fine, skin on or off, blanched or not)

1 cup medjool dates

Finely grated zest and juice of 2 limes

6 tablespoons desiccated coconut

1 teaspoon maca powder (optional)

2 tablespoons desiccated coconut for coating


Place the almonds in a food processor and process until finely chopped. Add remaining ingredients, (except 2 tablespoons desiccated coconut) and process until combined and paste-like. Roll mixture into golf ball size balls and coat in coconut. It is preferable to chill the balls for 30 minutes, although they can be eaten immediately.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 1-2 days or in the freezer. These freeze well.


Breakfast Muesli Balls

Makes 20 balls


2 cups oats or rice flakes

¼ cup coconut oil

¼ cup combine sunflower seeds and pepitas

¼ cup honey

¼ cup diced dried cranberries

¼ cup diced dried apricots

½ cup desiccated coconut

¼ cup ground linseed

1 tablespoon mesquite powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Finely grated zest of 1 orange

Approximately 3 tablespoons orange juice


Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process, adding sufficient orange juice to keep the mixture moving. Process until the mixture is almost dough-like.

Roll mixture into golf-ball sized balls.


Chef’s tip: muesli balls can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks or can be frozen.
