Cashew Coconut Lemon Balls Recipe:
2 cups raw CASHEWS
1 cup pitted DATES
1 Tbsp COCONUT OIL
1 Tbsp MAPLE SYRUP
1 tsp VANILLA EXTRACT
¼ tsp SALT
½ cup SHREDDED COCONUT
juice and zest of 1 sm LEMON
Cashew Coconut Lemon Balls Directions:
You’ll need a food processor for this recipe–in fact you can do the entire recipe in a food processor–but my proccesor is pretty small, so I just use it for chopping up the cashews and dates and do the rest of the mixing in another bowl.
Place the raw cashews in a food processor and chop for a few moments…cashews should be chopped fine. Add pitted dates and chop to same size.
Add coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt to the cashew/date mixture.
Zest one small lemon and mince the zest and add it to the mixture.
Slice the lemon and squeeze all of the juice into the mix.
Shape the mixture into ball shapes–whatever size you like for snacking!–grape size is best, I think.
Then roll the balls in shredded coconut to coat the outside.
And that’s it! –snack away!
Balls can be stored in the fridge until desired–in fact, they taste best right out of the fridge!
This super easy recipe makes a tasty treat and a great alternative to sugary candy bars and ice cream.
