I’ve been meaning to share this recipe with you all for months, but it kept getting pushed to the bottom of my to do list. I’ve finally found a sliver of time to share one of my favorite energy ball/bite recipes with you: no bake lemon coconut energy bites!!
This recipe was originally created when I took part in creating recipes in celebration for NOW Foods 50th anniversary e-book! The e-book is loaded with 50 twenty minute or less recipes that you have to check out! You can download the book here!
These no bake lemon coconut energy bites are addictively good! Full of citrusy flavors, hints of coconut and yummy nuts to keep you full and energized. They’re vegan and dairy free too! They are made with all natural ingredients and best of all — take only 10 minutes to make! The hardest part is cleaning your food processor afterwards (oh, and not eating too many of them at a time!). Many of the ingredients are found in your pantry and can be substituted as desired.
- Almonds for Cashews
- Agave or Honey or Maple Syrup (will definitely have a different flavor)
- Unsweetened or sweetened coconut flakes (just cut back on the sweetener a bit)
- Coconut flour or almond flour (use a bit less)
With the weather being a little more dreary, these delightful balls of flavor are the perfect little way to add a little spring to your step. They’re perfect for a late night snack, boost post-workout, on-the-go or for packing into your kiddos lunch boxes. They’re a feel-good snack option!
This recipe makes about 18 1-inch bites and I’d estimate that a serving is around 2-3 bites. Sometimes I like to make different sizes so that I can pick or choose depending on how hungry I am! If needed, they can be frozen as well (and to be honest, they’re pretty tasty as a frozen treat too!).
Alright, let’s get to the good stuff: the recipe!
What’s your post-workout snack of choice?
