Raw energy bites with the perfect mixture of fresh lemon and coconut flavor! Nutty, sweet, and full of nutrient dense ingredients to keep you going between meals. Vegan and gluten-free!
I get some RANDOM recipe inspiration.
Maybe it’s something I see on Instagram that I want to make a healthier version of. Maybe it’s something I have out to eat and want to make a homemade version of.
But what if I told you, THIS recipe was inspired by lotion.
Stay with me! 😉
I am not one of those people who spends a lot of money on skincare products, so most of my lotions, skincare products, and even perfumes come from places like Marshalls or TJMaxx.
I recently tried this Lemon Coconut lotion from the brand Everyone for Everybody and FELL IN LOVE with the scent.
It’s SO fresh and fruity…the perfect mix of lemon and coconut with neither being too overpowering.
I got to thinking…I would love to make a snack that TASTES like the way this lotion SMELLS.
And that’s how these Raw Lemon Coconut Bites were born.
Not only did a I nail the flavor…but these bites are easy to make, filled with healthy ingredients, and perfect for satisfying a sweet craving in the most tropical, fruity way ever.
These bites are:
- raw and vegan
- naturally gluten-free and grain-free
- high in healthy fats and fiber
- almond and peanut-free (in case those are allergy concerns)
- NO ADDED SUGAR
AKA the perfect healthy snack…made in minutes!
Grab the recipe below and make these for healthy snack to take with you on the go all week long.
