Finding healthy, easy snacks to use on the AIP diet isn’t always easy. This key lime pie coconut date ball recipe is super easy with only 4 ingredients and 10 minutes of prep time. They’re paleo, AIP friendly, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and whole 30 compliant.
They’re sweet and refreshing and super portable and convenient. You can also make a bunch of them pop in the freezer for a quick snack whenever you need it. I like to portion them out with 3 or 4 balls in a small zip lock bag or small container so I can just grab and go!

Coconut Date Ball Ingredients
Dates- Dates work so well for so many things. They add natural sweetness and are great for binding things together.
Coconut Flakes- Be sure to go with unsweetened.
Lime juice- Start with about 3 tbsp of lime juice and add a little more as needed based on your tastes.
Coconut Flour- This helps with binding as well and absorbs the moisture from the lime juice.
Optional Protein- Add a little collagen powder to make these into protein balls. Collagen is such an easy way to sneak protein into foods because it has no flavor and such a fine texture that it just blends right in. It’s also of course great for healing the lining of the gut.
These will keep fresh in the fridge for up 3-4 days in a tightly sealed container and about 3 months (possibly more) in the freezer.
