Coconut & Lemon Protein Balls (makes 9 balls)
Prep time: 10 minutes
Chill time: 1 hour
1 3⁄4 Cups Desiccated Coconut
2 Tbsp. Coconut Oil (melted)
3 Tbsp. CocoPro Original
3 Tbsp. Agave Nectar
1⁄2 Tsp. Vanilla
Zest 1 Lemon
Juice 1⁄2 Lemon
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until they form a crumbly mixture. Don’t worry if it doesn’t appear sticky enough at this point, once you start making the balls it will stick together perfectly.
Roll the mixture into small balls using your hands; it makes around 9-11 balls, depending how big you want them.
Pop in the fridge for one hour to set and harden a little, then enjoy!
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.
