Easy no-bake snacks with a lemony fresh flavor. Great to keep on hand for an on-the-go protein-packed sweet treat. You’re going to love this easy Lemon Coconut Protein Balls recipe!

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!

  1. Totally making these! Lemon desserts are always my fave so I’ll bring these to work for a mid day power snack. Yay.

  2. 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.

  3. These look so good! What do you think would work well as an alternative to the coconut flour? Oat bran perhaps?

  4. 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.

  5. 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 🙂

  6. 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)

  7. 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!
