Fresh and Easy Coconut Lemon Protein Bites

lemon energy balls

Hey everyone! You guys know I love making protein balls and having them around as a favourite quick pre/post/sweet cravings bite, and this time around, instead of coming up with just another version of chocolate chip balls, I branched out and came up with this refreshing coconut-lemon-cashew based recipe that is perfect for Summer and for those days when you feel like eating something citrus-y. I love how these bites turned out and I’m sure you’ll love them too. The best part is that they basically take three easy steps to make: combining all ingredients, shaping the mixture into balls, and dipping in coconut. See? Should not take you more than 15 minutes to whip up!

If you want to check out some of my other fave recipes there’s this one and this one (this last one is so good that it has been my go-to lately!). Let me know how you like these┬ácoconut lemon protein bites!

This recipe is so simple that basically all you have to do is throw it all in a food processor (if you have a small one just do it in two batches) and press until combined.
