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 are one of my all-time favorite flavor combinations, especially when made into a protein balls recipe. I mean, there’s nothing better than no bake protein balls when they’re made with lemon and coconut and totally homemade!
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, Quinn included!

Lemon coconut has to be one of my favorite food combos! (besides chocolate and PB, obviously). Excited to try these out, perfect for grabbing and going on my way to the gym!
Yum… lemon and coconut is one of my favs too!
These sound heavenly! Such a perfect dessert or snack for summer!
Yum! Tina, do you have the macros for this? Thanks 🙂
Totally making these! Lemon desserts are always my fave so I’ll bring these to work for a mid day power snack. Yay.
You had me at lemon!!!
These sound great! It would be helpful if you could post the macros for any recipe. That way I know if it is something I can make fit and won’t be disappointed after weighing and counting to find out it’s not a good addition for me in the current stage of cutting.
do you have the nutrition facts? these look good!
Yummo! I love lemon and coconut. I will have to give them a try.
These look so good! What do you think would work well as an alternative to the coconut flour? Oat bran perhaps?
Yummy !!! I have tried coconut balls with chocolate chips but this is different surely gonna try.
Curious what the nutritional stats are for these 🙂
Thanks for the recipe. These lemon coconut protein balls are so deliscious. And I feel no guilt eating them. Yum.
I just made those Lemon Coconut Protein Ball and they tastes good.
Nutritional value with my ingredients for 12 balls: 2066 Cal, 96g Carbs, 173g Fat and 32.2g Protein.
In one ball there is: 172 Cal, 8g Carbs, 14.4g Fat and 2.7g Protein.
I made them for my young athlete daughter but there is really not enough protein in each ball. You would need to eat several of them.
Could you add a scoop of vanilla or similar flavoured protein powder to the mix …….
I just tried this recipe and they are delicious!!! The mix was pretty moist at the beginning so I added a little bit more protein powder and coconut flour. I guess this helps a little with the grams of protein per ball 🙂
@Karla: it has a half a cup already!
Wondering if you could use gluten free oats in place of the coconut flour???
Third time I have made these nd I love them. So simple and so delicious, thanks for the recipe. (Also used almond meal the first time as I didn’t have coconut flour and loved them too)
Oooh, glad I stumbled onto these. Love! I used 1/2 cup of almond flour instead of coconut flour, and was really impressed! My mom is a local mail lady and I sent half to her to snack on during her route!
