Delicious, chewy, sweet keto lemon coconut balls of heavenly bliss..
These Lemon Coconut Balls are the perfect thing to curb any candy craving.
Just be sure to hide them from friends and family…
..because even non-keto people will be asking you for the recipe!
Some Ingredients I’d Like to Highlight:
- Truvia and Splenda -I have now switched over to only using a monkfruit/erythritol blend sweetener in all of my recipes since originally writing this post. I MUCH prefer the taste and affect it has on the body. I use the SoNourished brand for both granular and powdered sweetener and love it!
- Almond Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
Tools I used:
- Camera – I get a lot of questions asking what I take my photos with..I typically use my iphone OR this Nikon Camera (It’s honestly amazing!)
- Nutritional Scale – I’ve used this scale for almost every single recipe on this blog…I’ve had it for over 4 years and it’s still yet to fail me! I only replace the batteries maybe once per year.
