Is Coconut Keto Approved?

Yes, coconut is keto approved. Both coconut flour and unsweetened coconut flakes are low in carbs and have a large amount of fiber in them.

In order to keep this snack sugar-free, it’s important to select unsweetened coconut flakes when going grocery shopping for the ingredients. If you buy the regular coconut flakes you find in the store, those tend to have sugar added to them.

Fat is Energy!

Fat is the most caloric dense foods - with 9 calories per gram of fat! That is double the amount of calories compared to carbs and protein. So that is why fat keeps you full and satified longer. These energy bites are designed to have a large amount of fat and a little bit of protein to keep you fueled and ready for action! Each energy ball as 4.5 grams of fat in it!

Nut Butter Substitutions

Don’t want to use almond butter? You can substitute with any nut butter in the recipe. Macadamia nut, cashew, sunflower and pili nut butters will taste the best since they have mild flavors compared to peanut butter.

If you are allergic to nuts, try using coconut butter instead!

Keto Ball Storage

Store all of your keto coconut lime balls in an air tight container in the refrigerator. They will stay fresh that way and chilling the balls will help hold their shape.

You can also freeze the low carb energy bites too! Simply store in a freezer safe bag, press the air out and freeze. Take a few with you to work or school to have as a keto snack. They will unthaw by the time you go to eat them.
