Lemon and cashew balls
These are an easy, yummy, healthy way to provide a super snack. The kids can help make them, and they’d be scrumptious in a lunch box or for an after school nibble. Yummo! Thanks to Simple Nourishment for such a yummy treat.
What you really want to know is:
- These only take about 12 minutes to make
- This amount of ingredients makes 12 balls
- The balls keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks
- They are DELISH!!
What you need:
1 cup dry roasted cashew
2tsp fresh lemon zest
3tsp fresh lemon juice
1 TB maple syrup
1tsp coconut oil
¾ cup desiccated coconut (yummy!)
What to do:
Make cashew nut meal in food processor
Add zest, juice, maple syrup and oil to cashew meal
Once well combined add coconut
Pinch test to see if mix holds – pulse for longer if not coming together
Using tablespoon measure create balls
Roll in desiccated coconut to finish
Lemon essense (real) can be used here, although nothing beats fresh lemon!
These can be rolled into lengths as well with some love.
