Lemon Coconut Poppy Seed Balls

Today I’m sharing a super quick and tasty snack with you … they’re protein-packed, healthy, and have a nice ZEST to them! They’re Lemon Coconut Poppy Seed Balls and they’re the perfect (and summery!!) on-the-go treat for when you need a little pick-me-up.

Most of the ingredients below can be found at Bulk Barn which is one of my favourite places to grab bulk items like shredded coconut, flour, protein powder, poppy seeds, and even maple syrup!! Bulk Barn is one of my favourite spots to grab these kinds of items as you can stock up at a more affordable price point AND they have this awesome reusable container program where you can bring in and fill up your glass or plastic containers to reduce the amount of plastic bags!! LOVEE!!!

Also, I like the Protein Ball Party idea … it’s kind of like a Christmas goodie swap but with healthy treats!! The idea is to get your friends together and everyone makes a flavour of protein balls then you SWAP the flavours so everyone is able to take a container of different protein balls home! I think it’s such a brilliant idea! So, in addition to my twist on the protein balls, Bulk Barn is also sharing 5 of their recipes over on their site!!

I should also mention here that the protein powder in this recipe is optional, you can totally skip over it if you like and they will be just as tasty!

    Thanks Jillian! Went to BulkBarn’s FB page, and saved the recipe for all 5! They look delish, and are better than cookies as a snack, especially for my grandson (7 yrs old), whom we look after during the week!

    Ok, these are INSANELY good! They taste way too good to be healthy. They’re chilling in the fridge right now but I’ve already eaten some of the dough dough. Oops! Couldn’t wait!

    Oh my good God! ?.
    Talk about good and good for a person. I’m a cancer patient taking chemo, hence weight loss, so the protein powder (I added 1/2 cup) , helps and substituted the maple syrup with lavender honey. Yum!
    THANKS a heap….delicious and enjoyable! Good job Jillian! Double ??.

This Gingerbread Granola is seriously delicious with its perfect blend of nuts and indulgent spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger, paired with a hint of salt.
