Coconut + Lemon = Flavor Explosion!
I love lemony desserts, especially when they are raw and so healthy!
Coconut Lemon Bombs
The ingredient list is full of whole foods so you can be sure that you are feeding yourself a nourishing and healthy treat any time of day.
These no-bake cookie bites are a delicious combination of lemon and coconut with just the right amount of sweetness. Both flavors come through for a bright lemon flavor with a hint of coconut in these easy, vegan cookie balls.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

COCONUT LEMON BOMBS
An addicting healthy, no-bake, lemon cookie made with buckwheat groats, oats, dates, lemon and coconut!
- Prep Time: 15 min
- Total Time: 15 min
- Yield: Makes 12 - 14 Cookies
- Category: Dessert
- Cuisine: Vegan
- 1 cup raw cashews
- 1/3 cup buckwheat groats (not toasted kasha)
- 1/3 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut flakes
- zest of 2 lemons, medium sized
- juice of one lemon
- 6 – 7 medjool dates, softened and pitted
- 1/4–1/2 cup shredded coconut flakes for rolling
Place cashews, buckwheat groats and oats in food processor and blend until a medium to fine grind (doesn’t have to be perfect). The buckwheat may stay a bit chunky so if your looking for a smooth center use all oats. Add rest of ingredients and blend until combined and you have a doughy consistency. If you find your dough is a bit too dry try adding fresh squeezed lemon juice, 1 tablespoon at a time. Chill dough for about 20-30 minutes. Roll into 1 inch balls then roll in coconut flakes.
Makes approx. 12 – 14. Store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to two weeks.
If you don’t have buckwheat groats, replace with oats or more cashews. I love to include buckwheat wherever I can since it is a ‘superfood’ and packs a lot of protein and fiber per serving, they also have a nice nutty flavor. Per 1/4 cup serving you are getting 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber, more so than oats per serving, 1/2 cup yields 5 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber.
