Spring has finally made it’s way to the South Shore! While it’s been most dreary (with a little sunshine) outside, it’s tasting like spring inside. Coconut and lemon is one of my all-time favorite flavor combinations, and I think you’ll love this recipe for protein packed lemon coconut balls!

These no-bake protein balls are super easy to make, and I often keep a batch in the refrigerator for a nutritious dessert or snack on-the-go. They’re basically these protein bars in ball form. The whole family loves them, Qman included!

- 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
- 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 2 tbsp honey
