These coconut and lemon energy balls are perfect for sustaining your energy levels throughout the day.

If you’ve been looking for a raw ball without dates, then this is for you.

Each energy ball provides 6 g of protein and only 8 g of carbohydrates.

It’s optional to add the lemon juice to break up the sweetness, but I highly recommend it!
