Lemon Shortbread Candy

I LOVE this recipe. It has become a go-to daily snack! Observant readers will notice that this bears great resemblance to my skinny chocolate recipe, but it is an entirely different experience. It has a great mouthfeel and is so rich and creamy! I hope you'll enjoy it. 

Lemon Shortbread Candy

2T coconut oil
2T coconut butter
2T brazil nut protein powder 
1t Maca powder (this is a supplement that supports hormones)
1/4t lemon flavor (I use Simply Organic brand)

Place a small plate in the freezer (for fastest freezing, leave one there all the time). Combine all ingredients in a small jar or measuring cup. Bring some water to a boil, pour it into a mug; float your container of ingredients on top (I like to do this over the sink to avoid puddles on the counter). When melted, stir. Pour on frozen plate or into a silicon mold (I use 1t per heart). Freeze. Keep cold in the refrigerator or with an ice pack if you're out on the town. Enjoy!


  1. What is the purpose of the maca? Can it be skipped, or is there a possible sub? I think my kids would love these, but I don't want to give them a supplement. Thanks!

  2. Hi Dawn! Thanks for your reply! You can just leave it out. Maca does have a sweet, caramel taste that is yummy for us adults, but probably the recipe will be sweet enough from the coconut butter without it. You could alternately add 1t carob, which is nice and sweet too.
