Lemon Macadamia Energy Bites

Enjoy these bites straight from the refrigerator or freezer for nourishing, satiating fats, instead of reaching for a high-carb "pick-me-up!"


6 ounces
coconut oil
2 ounces
cocoa butter (or sub with additional 2oz coconut oil)
2 ounces
coconut cream (from the top of a can of coconut milk)
3 tablespoons
almond flour
3 tablespoons
coconut flour
medium lemon, juiced and zested
liquid stevia (or maple syrup to taste)
1⁄2 cup
shredded coconut
1⁄2 cup
macadamia nuts
sea salt


In a small pan over low heat, melt coconut oil, coconut cream, and cocoa butter (if using). When cool enough to handle, pour mixture in the blender and add flours, vanilla, lemon juice/zest. Add stevia to taste by adding drops (try 10 and taste, and increase if desired). Or use maple syrup instead, starting with 2 tablespoons and increasing to taste. Add shredded coconut and macadamia nuts. Pulse a few times to combine and lightly chop. 

Portion into bite-sized balls or press into a silicone mold and sprinkle with sea salt. Freeze until firm. Enjoy frozen or refrigerated.  (Recipeā™¦530)
