Can I Make These With Lemon Instead of Lime
If you prefer lemon over lime, go ahead and swap out the lemon. Either citrus works great, and you will find you could do half the mixture with lime, and the other half with lemon.
Ingredients For These Energy Balls
- Almond Butter
- Coconut Flour
- Stevia Extract and Sugar-Free Syrup
- Lemon or Lime Extract
- Filtered Water
- Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
How To Make
Making these keto energy bites is so easy to do. Simply toss all your ingredients but the shredded coconut into a bowl, and use your hands (or a wooden spoon) to mix it all up. Make sure to really get all the ingredients incorporated.
Then you will cover the bowl and place in the fridge for around 15 minutes to let them set up a bit.
Once your dough has set up a bit, then you will want to use a cookie scoop (2 tablespoon size). You can grease your hands or get your hands wet. This will help the energy ball dough from sticking to your hands.
Roll into a ball and place on a parchment-lined pan. Then you will take your balls and roll in the coconut flakes.
Can I Swap Almond Butter In Recipe
If you are not wanting to use almond butter, you can reach for any other type of nut butter. The biggest thing is to make sure you read the label and ensure it has no extra added ingredients.
You could even use a natural peanut butter if you want more of a classic flavor. Just know that the texture and flavor will change a bit depending on what nut butter you reach for.
How To Store Energy Bites
I was to make around 17 energy bites out of this recipe. That leaves you with a good amount. You will want to place your energy bites in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.
Now, if you go to stack your bites, I recommend doing a layer of wax paper between the bites. The reason being is they can stick together a bit.
Another thing to consider is freezing them. If you don't plan to eat them before they will dry out and go bad, place in a freezer friendly container. Then store in the freezer for 3-5 months.
When you want one, just remove from freezer and let thaw on the counter for 20-30 minutes and then enjoy! Or place them in the fridge overnight before you plan to eat them.

I have a question. What kind of almond butter and sugar free syrup go uou use in these balls?
There are links to products on Amazon in the recipe card. 🙂
Could you use key lime juice in place of the water and extract?
