Lemon Lush Energy Bites

4.1.19

These no bake lemon lush energy bites are perfect to have as a quick and healthy snack or dessert! They can also be enjoyed before or after a workout! They’re packed with coconut flour, coconut butter, dates, protein powder, MCT oil, unsweetened coconut, lemon, and a splash of almond milk! 

This recipe is inspired by my sweet Grandma. Once spring and summer rolled around back home, she would always make us Lemon Lush! Lemon Lush is similar to lemon squares, but in cake form. It’s SO good and was one of my family’s favorites! 

I created these Lemon Lush Energy Bites recipe last year to put a healthier spin on my Grandma’s famous Lemon Lush! They’re the perfect mix of spring and summer flavors. These bites came out better than I expected. I knew they were going to be good, but not THIS GOOD. They taste like little bites of lemon cakes rolled in coconut heaven. The dates in this recipe give a nice touch of sweetness and the MCT oil provides a great source for quick energy!
