Coconut & Almond No-Bake Balls

Coconut and almond balls

People often want to know how they can prepare snacks and desserts while on the Candida diet. Well here is a delicious recipe that uses unsweetened almond butter and stevia. This recipe requires no baking at all. You can eat these no-bake balls in moderation during your Candida diet.

You can keep these balls in the fridge for several days (although they will probably be eaten much sooner!) and you can freeze them too. They are gluten-free, sugar-free and packed full of healthy nutrients from the almond butter and coconut. If you get hungry between meals, these balls are a really satisfying little snack.

    Great recipe! For extra flavoring, we added cinnamon, nutmeg, and xyla to the recipe to taste, then to the finished coconut balls, a mixure of cinnamon, nutmeg, and xlitol to a bit of melted butter to coat the balls and make it taste a little like a cinnamon roll!:) Yum.

    Can you recommend a good almond butter to use? The almond butter I get from Trader Joe’s may be too creamy. Thanks!

  3. JT says

    These look great but I absolutely do not like Stevia and its after taste. Xylitol is the best and it tastes just like sugar with no after taste and it’s allowed on the Candida Diet.

  4. Tarini says

    I have been going through your recipes and all of them are fantastic!
    I wanted to know whether I could substitute coconut flour with anything else? Would buckwheat flour work? Sorry, I’m completely new to cooking, so I’m honestly pretty clueless!
    Thank you

    when you say coconut milk, I never know if you mean the kind you drink or the kind in a can. How am I to distinguish between the two?

    • Lisa Richards says

      Always use the canned coconut milk in these recipes. The coconut milk in the cartons contains other ingredients that could aggravate or worsen your Candida. For example Silk coconut milk contains carrageenan, which can cause inflammation in the gut and alter your gut flora. The ingredients list also says it contains ‘natural flavoring’, and who knows what that is!

        Thanks so much! I started your diet last month after being sick since April 1st. I had been on about four antibiotics due to an infected tooth, and just could not heal. Now I feel 100% better! I could only do the cleanse for three days as I was down to 93 lbs. I had lost 15 lbs in two months, and I’ve actually gained needed weight back since doing this diet.

    These sound absolutely delicious and the recipes too! I’m only finding this website now and don’t know if I’ll be able to get some ingredients where I live. Would it be possible to use spelt flour and non dairy butter (they’re what I use)? Plus, what’s stevia? I don’t think we have it here.

    • Lisa Richards says

      Spelt is still a glutenous grain, although it does tend to be better digested than wheat. I’ve never heard of non-dairy butter, sorry! And stevia is an herbal sweetener that doesn’t spike your blood sugar. I hope that helps!

    Hi Lisa,
    I love your diet. I cannon believe the difference it has made to me.Love the recipes and it is very easy to stick to it when it makes such an improvement in my health. thank you so much.

  8. Ivy says

    These sound great but can I substitute almond flour for coconut flour? (and almond milk for coconut milk?). I think my stomach is sensitive to coconut for the time being. Not sure if I can eat almond flour raw though…thanks!

  9. Avery says

    I tried making this in my vitamix, but my almond butter was too hard and I couldn’t get all the ingriedients to fully integrate. So I hand mixed it and added extra coconut oil and pressed it all into a pan, on top of cling wrap. Then I cooled them in the fridge and cut them into little bars. So good! I also used xylitol instead of stevia, I melted in the coconut oil first.
    Thanks for the great recipe!
