Lemon Coconut Bites


Sunflower seed butter makes for a perfect base for a bliss ball and doesn’t get nearly as much attention as it should. Sunflower seeds contain vitamin E (an antioxidant), magnesium (healthy bones + energy production), and healthy polyunsaturated fats. These delicious seeds are perfect to add to salads, a snack mix, or energy bites. In my quest to #shopnaked, I only buy sunflower seeds in bulk with my own containers/bags and without single use packaging (zero waste style!). To learn how I shop naked in the bulk section, check out my guide here.

The lemon and coconut flavor in this recipe pairs really well with the rich sunflower seed butter. Add more dates if you need these to be sweeter.
