Lemon Coconut Poppy Seed Balls

Today I’m sharing a super quick and tasty snack with you … they’re protein-packed, healthy, and have a nice ZEST to them! They’re Lemon Coconut Poppy Seed Balls and they’re the perfect (and summery!!) on-the-go treat for when you need a little pick-me-up.

Most of the ingredients below can be found at Bulk Barn which is one of my favourite places to grab bulk items like shredded coconut, flour, protein powder, poppy seeds, and even maple syrup!! Bulk Barn is one of my favourite spots to grab these kinds of items as you can stock up at a more affordable price point AND they have this awesome reusable container program where you can bring in and fill up your glass or plastic containers to reduce the amount of plastic bags!! LOVEE!!!

Also, I like the Protein Ball Party idea … it’s kind of like a Christmas goodie swap but with healthy treats!! The idea is to get your friends together and everyone makes a flavour of protein balls then you SWAP the flavours so everyone is able to take a container of different protein balls home! I think it’s such a brilliant idea! So, in addition to my twist on the protein balls, Bulk Barn is also sharing 5 of their recipes over on their site!!

I should also mention here that the protein powder in this recipe is optional, you can totally skip over it if you like and they will be just as tasty!

    Thanks Jillian! Went to BulkBarn’s FB page, and saved the recipe for all 5! They look delish, and are better than cookies as a snack, especially for my grandson (7 yrs old), whom we look after during the week!

  2. Agathe Rochon says:

    Hi, is there a substitute I can use instead of Almond Flour? Thanks!

  3. Tanja says:

    Hi Jillian! Can you remember where have you bought long pulls in yours fridge and freezer? Thank you ?

  4. Dana says:

    These are delicious so fresh

  5. Stephanie says:

    Ok, these are INSANELY good! They taste way too good to be healthy. They’re chilling in the fridge right now but I’ve already eaten some of the dough dough. Oops! Couldn’t wait!

  6. Jackie says:

    Oh my good God! ?.
    Talk about good and good for a person. I’m a cancer patient taking chemo, hence weight loss, so the protein powder (I added 1/2 cup) , helps and substituted the maple syrup with lavender honey. Yum!
    THANKS a heap….delicious and enjoyable! Good job Jillian! Double ??.

  7. Gillian says:

    These are AMAZING! Just made them last night and they are making my work day that much better right now. Thanks for the great recipe!

  8. Heidi says:

    So yummy!! They taste kind of like lemon cakes. I prefer them nice and cold. Thanks for the recipe. My 2.5 year old loves them too. ?

  9. Jessica says:

    Just made these and they are so yummy! I loved that I had every ingredient in my house as well ❤️ I even added some orange juice and zest

  10. Mare says:

    Absolutely delicious !!! Love Love Love the lemon !!

  11. Jaimie Bossers says:

    Made them tonight ! Hoping to freeze them and have them ready for when new baby comes in two weeks! Tasted some of the dough along the way and VERY good! Thank you.

  12. Rachel says:

    So great! I added hemp hearts and collagen powder…tasty morning treat with a punch of nutrients! Merci for the recipe.

  13. Janaya says:

    Is the coconut flour needed or could I just use almond flour?? They sound delicious!

  14. Tammy says:

    Two of my favouite foods – lemons and coconut! I will have to make these this weekend! Looks YUMMY!

  15. Sara says:

    Just made these and they’re absolutely delicious!!! Thanks so much!
