Key Lime Pie Energy Balls (Paleo, AIP, Vegan, Whole 30)
Finding healthy, easy snacks to use on the AIP diet isn’t always easy. These key lime pie energy balls are 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!

4 Simple 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.
