Lemon Coconut Protein Balls

We all love the occasional snack but when you sit all day at a desk, snacking can be your biggest enemy. Having healthy, homemade snack options available will not only make your wallet happy but your waist line too. These protein balls pack a huge punch of flavour and protein. They are practically raw, although not official. They do not need to be baked and require very little prep time.

I got inspiration for these yummy protein balls from Ani Phyo who is an eco-lifesylist and raw foodist. I was looking for a recipe that didn’t contain dates. Dates are a very common ingredient in raw food and especially raw protein balls/bars. I used the Coconut Breakfast Cakes and made a few modifications to get what I wanted!

Lemon Coconut Protein Balls


  • 2 cups milled flax seed
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (1/2 cup, I used Sunwarrior, Warrior blend)
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (1 juiced lemon)
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut


Put all ingredients into a large bowl and mix well. Form into bite sized balls. This will make about 20 balls, depending on how big you like them.

They can also be flattened into a pancake and topped with fresh fruit! I didn’t have any in the house (gasp) so I have to wait till next time to do this. YUM!

Eat better. Feel better.
