Lemon Coconut Bites

These lemon coconut bites are a combination of tart and sweet packed into a healthy bite-sized treat. Lemon Coconut bites are a much healthier version of one of my favorite desserts, lemon bars. These little bite sized balls are quickly becoming my favorite spring time treat.


  • 1 cup packed pitted dates
  • 1 ¼ cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup unsweetened finely shredded coconut (an extra 3 Tbsp is needed for coating the bites)
  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons hemp seeds
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice (juice of 1 lemon)
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger


  1. Add all the ingredients to the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade attachment.
  2. Process until all the ingredients are well incorporated and take on a dough-like consistency. You will know the mixture is done when the ‘dough’ starts to form into a ball in the food processor.
  3. Pour a little shredded coconut (approximately 3-4Tablespoons) into a separate bowl or plate and set next to the dough bowl. Now you are all set up and ready to begin rolling and coating your bites into coconut covered balls.
  4. With damp hands (I dip my hands into a small bowl of water before rolling as this helps pack the balls tightly and also allows the finely shredded coconut to stick onto the balls), roll a tablespoon-sized amount of the mixture into balls. Tip: I use a small cookie dough scoop to form consistent ball sizes and then finish them by hand rolling.
  5. Roll each bite in the coconut, using your hands to help press the coconut into the surface.
  6. Store bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
