No Bake Lemon Coconut Quinoa Balls // Gluten Free


Here’s my 2nd recipe using quinoa in “baking”.   Btw, I’m totally making the Banana Quinoa Muffins again this week!!  Maya’s been asking for them every day haha 🙂  They disappeared so fast!

The best part of this next recipe is that after you have made a batch of quinoa, the rest is no bake/aka easy!!Blog No Bake Gluten Free Lemon Coconut Quinoa Balls -1 Blog No Bake Gluten Free Lemon Coconut Quinoa Balls -2 Blog No Bake Gluten Free Lemon Coconut Quinoa Balls -3

Ingredients (Made 15 Balls)

  • 1 Cup cooked Quinoa
  • 1/2 Cup Almonds
  • 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon shredded lemon rind
  • 1 Cup Medjul Dates
  • 2 Tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut (can get super cheap in the bulk section of a health food store)

Directions

You can do all of it in the Cuisinart.  One dish-easy clean up-WIN!!

  • Pulse almonds until they are the size of half a grain of rice (or look like quinoa! :))
  • Add in Dates, lemon rind, and coconut oil and pulse until mixture clumps together.
  • Add in quinoa and pulse a few more times, just to mix it all together.
  • Take a heaping Tablespoon and form balls in your hand (mine were about 1.5 inches wide).
  • roll in unsweetened coconut and place in the freezer.  You can eat them frozen, but they are best after warming up a few minutes.

ENJOY!
