These lemony bites pack TONS of lemon flavor. They’re like citrus bites of heaven. Lemon cookie dough. And EASY to make with just a handful of healthy whole foods (and NO sugar of any kind!)
When life gives you lemons…
You make lemon desserts, of course! Somehow I ended up with tons of lemons, so a new lemon recipe it is!
Btw, if you happen to have lemons you need to use up, zest them! Then freeze the zest in a ziplock bag if you’re not using it right away. I like to add lemon zest to everything! Muffins, pancakes, pesto, and of course, these lemon bites! OMG yum!
Fresh lemon zest adds TONS of lemon flavor to these little pieces of heaven. I can never stop at just one! But that’s fine with me, because they’re LOW CARB. Yep, no sugar of any kind.
4 Simple, Wholesome Ingredients
- Almond butter
- Lemon (zest and juice)
- Coconut flour
…plus a dash of salt and vanilla to enhance the flavors.
Tip: Use natural almond butter without any added oils or sugars – especially if you’re wanting to keep these low-carb. I like to use homemade almond butter which is easy to make by blending roasted almonds in a food processor until liquefied. You don’t have to add any oil or liquid.
I used liquid stevia drops here, but feel free to use monkfruit drops, a pinch of stevia powder, or a few teaspoons of your favorite powdered sweetener, such as powdered Lakanto erythritol-monkfruit or Besti allulose-monkfruit. Always sweeten to taste.
Easy as 1, 2, 3: Zest. Stir. Devour.
These are crazy simple to make. And you don’t need a food processor or mixer. Just a good old fashioned spoon, ha.
Stir together the handful of ingredients
Then roll the balls in coconut shreds or more coconut flour (both of which remind me of a crispy sugar coating.. but sugar-free! And oh so good.)
Protein balls, bliss balls, power bites, energy bites, dough balls, truffles… So many names for these little guys! But yes, they are full of protein and BLISS, haha. Whatever you call them, they’re delicious!
Chewy, lemony deliciousness. Love! So simple. So healthy. So dang good.

Low Carb Lemon Bites
- Stir together all ingredients (except coconut flakes) in a medium bowl.
- Taste and adjust for sweetness & lemon flavor, adding more sweetener or zest if needed. If your dough is too wet, add a little more coconut flour. If it's too dry, add an extra splash of lemon juice or water.
- Scoop balls onto a parchment lined plate using a small cookie scoop, teaspoon or tablespoon. Use your hands to roll the dough into a ball.
- Roll each ball in coconut flakes or coconut flour. Or just leave them as-is!
- Freeze or refrigerate until cold. Enjoy!
I used SweetLeaf stevia drops, but you can use whichever sweetener you like best. However, you may need to add more coconut flour if using liquid (maple/honey) or less if using granulated/powdered sweetener. I would start with 1 Tbs maple syrup and add 1 Tbs extra coconut flour. Taste and see if it's sweet enough. Adjust to your liking 🙂 To store: Keep refrigerated (or freezer) for about 10 days (or 2 months frozen in an airtight container).
