AIP Lemon Coconut Balls
The perfect Summer pick-me-up snack. Autoimmune Paleo with a Keto & Vegan option.
Good morning and happy Friday everyone!
I've been AIP (autoimmune paleo) for nearly a week now and I will say, I do already feel a little better. I know that by no means is anything a quick fix, and that truly it will take months or even years of dedication to fully optimize health but clarity of mind, digestive improvement, more energy, less of the afternoon sluggishness- it's definitely starting to shift.
Prior to hopping on the AIP train, I would make my protein balls weekly and keep them in the fridge or freezer for grab and go snacks in between Pure Barre classes. Although my trusty protein packed recipe isn't compliant for me at the moment, I decided to recreate something similar in the form of these lemon coconut balls.
These don't have the high protein count like the others (although you could totally add some collagen to these if you fancied it) but they are packed with healthy fats and taste delicious. The lemon flavor is simple perfect in these hot Summer months. I have made these with and without sweetener and they taste fabulous either way. Raw honey, in moderation of course, is one of the few sweeteners I am allowed to have on AIP so I opted for that when making this recipe for the first time but if you are following a Ketogenic lifestyle or have another favorite choice- go for it! The great thing about this simple recipe is that it's highly adaptable.
Keep these in your fridge and grab them whenever you need a little energy boost or yummy nibble!
