Lemon Coconut Bites

Here’s a simple grain and dairy free sweet treat recipe for the festive period.

Happy Christmas!

Lemon Coconut Bites


  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • ½ to 1 cup dates (depending on taste)
  • 1 cup walnuts, hazelnuts or pecans (soaked overnight)
  • Juice and rind of 1 lemon
  • Pinch sea salt


  • 2 tbsp desiccated coconut


Place the desiccated coconut (except for the coconut that you will be using for the coating) into a food processor and process until the texture is a little sticky. Then add the other ingredients and blend until smooth. I find a half cup of dates is enough for sweetness however you can add more to the mix for extra sweetness. Take a heaped tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a ball, and then repeat this for the rest of the mixture. Spread 2 tablespoons of desiccated coconut onto a chopping board or flat plate and roll each ball on the desiccated coconut until coated. Chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving.
