Insanely delicious 7-ingredient lemon coconut bliss balls! One of my absolute favorite sweet & zesty bites to prep and keep in the freezer. They’re made from cashew butter, lightly sweetened with pure maple syrup, and coated in shredded coconut.
I made this recipe a while back and shared them on my Instagram feed, and have been wanting to get them on the blog for the longest time since so many of you have made them!
One bite and you’ll feel like you’re on a tropical island.
Ok that may be a stretch, but a girl can dream. Seriously though, these are SO good and very quick to whip up.
I’ve been trying to work on more freezer-friendly snacks and sweets for you guys, especially ones that can last a while. My cravings change pretty much daily, and I always like to have a variety of things in my freezer.
These are a lot different than your usual energy bites made of oats and nut butter, but equally delicious. But don’t worry- I have some recipes for those as well linked at the end of this post!
What you’ll need to make lemon coconut bliss balls
The ingredients for these bites are so simple, but somehow come together to form the most delicious sweet & zesty treat. Here’s what you’ll need-
- Cashew butter– I like to use one made of roasted cashews with no added sugar. I usually grab mine at Trader Joe’s! I wouldn’t suggest substituting any other nut butter for these since cashew is a lot more subtle in taste than the others, and really gives it that perfect flavor.
- Almond flour– this is the almond flour I like to bake with because its super fine!
- Pure maple syrup
- Shredded coconut– be sure to grab an unsweetened version to cut back on the added sugar
- Lemon juice
- Lemon zest
- Vanilla extract
You guys are going to love these bites, and I can’t wait to see all of your remakes!
These are AMAZING!!! They will be eaten quickly. So delicious and satisfying. My kids love all of your snacks so much.
That makes me so happy! Thanks, Brigitte 🙂
Just made these and loved them, used almond butter instead if cashew. Great midday snack or sweet tooth craving!
Yay! I’m happy they worked well with almond butter 🙂
Love your vegan inspirations. I’m not vegan but venturing all cooking nutritional avenues. Thanks so much
I’m personally not vegan either, but love getting creative with recipes. You can search “vegan” in the search bar to narrow down the recipes!
Just made these and they are delicious! I will definitely be making them again!
So glad you enjoyed them, Courtney!
