No Bake Healthy Lemon Bar Coconut Balls - Rachel Teodoro

No Bake Healthy Lemon Bar Coconut Balls

I don't know many people who don't love the refreshing flavor of a lemon. It makes me think of summer even in the dead of winter. Why not try these healthy lemon bar coconut balls for an easy-to-make snack. The lemon flavor pops while the coconut takes a backseat to let the flavor take over. I do love a sweet treat that seems like an indulgence but really, it's low in sugar and cures the craving. Give them a try, I bet you are going to love them!





Lemon Bar Coconut Balls


You will need:

     ½ cup of coconut flour
     ½ cup almond flour
     4 medjool dates, pitted
     ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
     3 tablespoons of coconut butter, melted
     2 tablespoon of lemon juice (1 medium size lemon)
     2 teaspoons lemon zest
     4 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

Procedure:

Add all ingredients into a food processor. Blend well, about 1-3 minutes.
The ‘dough’ should stick together with a little pressure, making the ball shape easy to form.
I use a small cookie scoop, 2 scoops per ball.
Add to a parchment lined baking sheet and pop in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Letting the lemon bar balls harden makes it easier to add a drizzle.

If eliminating dates due to carb amount, sub ¼-½ cup of nut butter of choice.

These recipes are the best because they are easily adjustable!
If the dough gets too ‘wet’ add a little more almond or coconut flour.
If the dough needs a little extra moisture to stick together, add more melted coconut oil or nut butter.

Feeling a little extra sweet? Maple syrup will do the trick!

Makes 11 lemon bar balls.
Keep refrigerated.

Coconut Frosting Drizzle:


     2 tablespoons of coconut butter
     ½ tsp coconut oil
     1 ½ tsp of lemon juice
     Splash of vanilla extract

To make a little sweeter, add ¼ teaspoon of maple syrup.

Add all ingredients to a microwave safe bowl.
Microwave for 10-15 seconds. Mix well.
Lemon has a tendency to seize up ingredients.
If the drizzle gets too thick, add more coconut oil and pop back into the microwave for a few seconds.
Drizzle on Lemon Coconut Balls and top with lemon zest.

Hi, Rachael! These coconut lemon balls sound like quite the treat! Can I use PB2 in place of dates or nut butters?

Thanks!
