Lime Coconut No Bake Energy Bites

June 20, 2017

Chocolate energy bites, flax energy bites, pumpkin energy bites.  Seems like there’s so many these days.  Well, they’re everywhere for 3 reasons.

  1. They’re healthy
  2. They’re easy
  3. They are sooooo tasty.

I found this recipe for lime coconut no bake energy bites from Oprah.com that are refreshingly different.  The only thing I changed was substituting almond milk for coconut milk.  They’re a great protein snack for summertime.

I’ve been snacking on these things for a week and they fill me up.  Two does a body good.  You can either eat these pre-workout or pre-bedtime.

Even if you’re not a big coconut person, you’ll like these.  The lime really balances out the sweetness of the coconut.  You get sweet and savory!

For the recipe, you’ll need a food processor to get everything evenly combined.  If you don’t have one, a blender will do ;).

Combine almond meal, coconut flour, 1/2 cup coconut, maple syrup, lime juice, 1 teaspoon of lime zest and coconut milk in a food processor.

Pulse until evenly combined. Add medjool dates and process for 30 seconds to 1 minute until it has a nice mealy consistency.

In a small bowl, combine 1 teaspoon of lime zest with 2 tablespoons of shredded coconut.

Scoop about 1 tablespoon of almond meal mixture and using wet hands form into balls. They form easily with the sticky dates in there. It makes about a dozen bites. Roll each ball in coconut lime mixture to cover. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set.

I keep mine in a tupperware for up to a week.  They are protein rich and give you tons of energy.

Happy Eating!
