HEALTHY KEY LIME PIE BALLS INGREDIENTS

- Ground flaxseeds
- Coconut flour
- Raw honey
- Creamy cashew butter
- Coconut oil
- 2 limes (or 4 key limes)
HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY KEY LIME PIE BALLS
These healthy key lime bites are so easy to make!
To make your key lime pie energy balls simply add all ingredients to a medium sized mixing bowl: ¼ cup ultra fine shredded coconut, ¼ cup ground flaxseeds, ¼ cup coconut flour, ¼ cup raw honey, ¼ cup creamy cashew butter, 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil, and the juice and zest of 2 limes.
Mix your energy ball ingredients well to combine. Place the bowl in the fridge for 10 minutes to let the batter firm up and allow the coconut flour to absorb the liquid.
Remove from the fridge, roll the batter into 9 equal sized balls.
How to make ground flaxseeds: if you don't have ground flaxseeds for your key lime balls not to worry! You can easily make ground flaxseeds from whole flaxseeds at home. Simply add ¼ cup of whole flaxseeds (gold or brown will work) to a coffee grinder. Grind until they are a fine texture like flour.
How to zest a lime using a cheese grater: If you don't have a lemon/ lime zester, not to worry! You can zest a lime using a cheese grater. Just make sure it has the smaller hole side (as you don't want huge chunks of lime skin!). To zest a lime, first wash the skin under warm water. Next, rub the lime against the cheese grater just like you would cheese. Keep doing this until there is no green skin left on. Use the inside of the lime for fresh lime juice!
How to store key lime balls:
Store your coconut key lime energy balls in the fridge for up to a week! Or, you can store them in the freezer for about 3 months! Either way you store them, make sure you have them in an airtight container. I like to lay parchment paper along the bottom of the container to prevent them from sticking.
Are key lime pie energy balls actually healthy?
Yes! Energy balls are healthy for you. They are high in protein, fiber, and other essential nutrients. Energy balls make a great snack, or a dessert alternative when you are craving something sweet.
Serve these key lime pie balls to your guests as a dessert and call them key lime truffles, I bet they won't guess how many healthy ingredients are loaded inside!
Is key lime healthy?
Yes! Key lime is good for your health. Key limes are an excellent source of disease fighting vitamin C. Vitamin C is also necessary for skin health (collagen formation), and helps with iron absorption!
