Lemon Coconut Energy Balls

Healthy Energy Bites With Coconut

Packed with coconut and a light lemon flavor and sweetened naturally, Raw Lemon Coconut Macaroons are a satisfying guilt-free snack you can enjoy anytime.


  • 1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut + a little extra
  • 1/3 cup almond meal
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 3 pitted dates*
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a food processor until fully combined. Form into balls. (If it’s not moist enough to hold it’s form, you can add 1/2-1 more tablespoon of honey). Roll the balls into the extra shredded coconut (optional).
  2. Store in the refrigerator.


  • *Note: Don’t buy the sweetened dates usually found by the raisins in the grocery store. Look for whole dates, like medjool dates. If you can’t find dates, you can substitute extra honey (1 tablespoon) instead.
