These creamy lemon coconut balls make a tasty healthy snack – they are low carb, gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. With a delicious blend of zesty lemon and creamy coconut these bliss balls are an easy to make no bake snack!

I’m a big fan of all things lemon and coconut so these lemon coconut balls are a match made in heaven for me! They remind me of a lemon cheesecake but are most definitely a more healthy version in a convenient bite sized package!

I am always on the lookout for healthy unprocessed snacks that can be easy to grab and go or pop into lunchboxes.

My little boy adores these and prefers them to any other flavoured bliss balls including the ones with chocolate or cacao! That is fine by me as these are a little less stimulating with the added benefits of some vitamin C goodness from the lemons.

He loves helping me roll them into balls – especially as he gets to do it twice – once into a ball then once again into the desiccated coconut.

Additional Notes for making Lemon Coconut Balls

  • I have used raw honey in lemon bliss balls – the delicate flavour of the honey really compliments the zesty tangy lemon. If you would like these bliss balls to be vegan you could easily replace the honey with maple syrup or if you want to keep them sugar free you could use liquid stevia instead.
  • If you are in a warmer climate then it may help to put the dough in the freezer for 10 minutes before rolling into balls.

      January 10, 2019 at 11:34 am Hi Brelly, oh thats a shame, the cashews really help makes these nice and creamy. I haven't tried making them with anything else but a few options you could try would be macadamia nuts or increase the almond meal by 1/2 cup. Or increase the almond meal by 1/4 cup and the desiccated coconut by 1/4 cup. This may change the consistency of the balls but should still work. Let me know how you get on! :)

    February 24, 2019 at 12:26 am could you use tigernut flour for this and omit the almond flour and cashews?

      February 27, 2019 at 9:06 am Hi there, I don't think that would work as that would really change the consistency of the lemon balls. Hope :)
