Lemon & Coconut Bites

These were the most popular treats at The Well Nest Kitchen. Something about the lemon and coconut combination that makes your taste buds sing. I love making these truffles because they are incredibly easy to make and generally don't offend anyone because they contain no nuts, are gluten free, vegan and ideal for the kiddie's lunchbox*.


250g cashews*
2 cups desiccated coconut (plus extra for coating)
1 scoop vanilla vegan protein

300g pitted dates
2 tbs coconut oil melted
Juice and zest of 1 lemon


  1. In a high speed food processor mill all the dry ingredients until you form a coarse flour.
  2. Add the wet ingredients and combine until the mixture is soft and crumbly and sticks together when pinched between forefinger and thumb.
  3. Roll into 30g balls then roll in the extra desiccated coconut.
  4. Place in an airtight container and place in the freezer for 1 hour to harden.
  5. Keep in the freezer and take out as needed.
  6. Enjoy.

* If allergic to cashews or for lunch box purposes please use 1 cup of coconut instead of the cashews making it 3 cups of coconut in total.

** If you don't have the lemon oil simply use the rind of the lemon you are juicing.

You can't go wrong with a good pancake for breakfast. Finding a recipe that is healthy and tastes good can be a little tricky however. I've tried almond meal and find it burns too quickly, I've tried coconut flour and it's just that little bit too dry. Buckwheat or even amaranth flour however both hold up under pressure, and with a touch of yoghurt could even pass for the real deal. This recipe is packed with protein, which will keep you fuller for longer, without the bloat. Enjoy! SaveSaveSaveSaveSave
