1 c raw almond pulp

1/2 c coconut flour

1 tbsp almond butter

1/2 tsp Kosher salt

1 1/2 c freeze-dried raspberries

1/2  c unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)


  1. Mix together the almond pulp, coconut flour, almond butter, and kosher salt in a bowl until it forms a thick batter. Set aside.
  2. Place the freeze dried raspberries inside a clean, folded-over dish towel or between two paper towels and crush them with the heel of your hand. be careful not to overdo it! You want colorful chunks of raspberry, not a pink powder. 
  3. Fold the crushed raspberries into the batter, taking care not to crush them further. Don’t stop mixing until they are evenly distributed.
  4. Scoop out about 2 tbsp of batter and roll it between your palms to form a ball. Optional: roll it in the shredded coconut to coat. 
  5. Store energy balls in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week, or freeze for up to 3 months.
