Lemon Coconut Energy Balls

Hi Friends!

Okay so quick question. Am I the only one obsessed with energy balls lately? ! No bake protein balls, bliss balls, etc. I’ve heard a couple fun names but you get the idea. They’re all so great ! These are the perfect sweet treats to keep in the fridge because they’re individual which makes it easy to grab on the go. The lemon zest gives them a great tang to offset the sweetness of the Medjool Dates. I love a balance with my sweets which is why I usually sprinkle sea salt into all my dessert recipes so feel free to do the same !

Lemon is definitely NOT my go to for sweets but sometimes it just comes out being exactly what you needed. Give these a try and let me know what you think. Please Enjoy!
