Tor those snobs that also need a (natural) sugar fix, these will fill you up and fulfill that craving. Plus you can freeze them so they last longer. Did I mention they're delicious?
- 1C cashews
- 1C dates, soaked if dried out
- 1/4C white or dark chia seeds
- 1/2C coconut flakes (and an extra 1/2C on the side for rolling)
- juice of half a lemon
- lemon zest from one lemon
- dash of vanilla
- dash of salt
Put all the ingredients in your food processor, scraping down the sides as you go. Once it's pretty well mixed, take it out and put the remaining 1/2C coconut flakes on a plate -- sometimes having slightly wet hands is best for this since it can be quite sticky. Roll into 1" balls and then roll in the coconut flakes. Makes about 8-10 balls total. Save half to eat now and freeze the other half in an airtight container to enjoy anytime you need a fix, enjoy!
