Lemon Melt-Away Balls for One

These little minxes will be gone before you can say “ooooh, yummie!” Just in case, the recipe doubles well.

Makes 4 or 5 balls.

½ cup almond flour (I used rice flour and it was just fine)
2 TBLSP coconut flour
Pinch of salt
2 TBLSP maple syrup (or agave nectar)
4 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
½ teaspoon lemon extract
½ teaspoon vanilla extract (or all vanilla if you can’t find lemon extract)
3 TBLSP coconut oil, melted

  1. In a small bowl, combine the flours and salt.
  2. In another small bowl, combine the maple syrup, lemon juice, zest, and vanilla and mix well.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until well combined. Add the melted coconut oil, and blend it in well.
  4. One spoonful at a time (about a generous tablespoon), roll the dough in the palms of your hands into a ball.
  5. Refrigerate for 15-30 minutes.

  • Roll the finished balls in shredded coconut flakes, granulated sugar, almond flour, cocoa, or powdered sugar. (This variety is shown in the photo.) 
  • Flatten the balls into cookies and run them in the dehydrator or oven at the lowest setting (110 degrees Fahrenheit) for about an hour.
