Recipe type: Snack, Dessert
Serves: 15
Ingredients
  • Dates 20 each
  • Fresh Grated Lemon Zest 2 TSPN
  • Fresh Squeeze Lemon Juice 2 TBSP
  • Raw Cashews .75 cup (90 g)
  • Raw Almonds .5 cup (60 g)
  • Sea Salt .25 TSP
  • Coconut Flour 2 TBSP
Instructions
  1. Soften your dates by soaking in a bowl with water just covering them for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours. The longer that you soak, the easier it will be combine them with the other ingredients in your blender or food processor. You can also chop them up into smaller pieces before soaking to help expedite and streamline this process. When finished, drain the dates, but save some of the water in the bowl.
  2. Place the nuts into your blender or food processor and pulse until combined and a coarse meal results.
  3. Add the dates, lemon juice, sea salt and 1 TSPN of the lemon zest and mix until a thick/sticky dough is formed. If things are getting stuck, you can add a very small (1 TSPN at a time) bit of the remaining date water to help out.
  4. Mix in the 2 TBSP of the coconut flour to help things thicken up and to reduce some of the stickiness.
  5. Place in the freezer for about 10-20 minutes to allow the mixture to slightly harden.
  6. Remove from freezer and roll a tablespoon size portion between your hands to shape into a small ball and then place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Optional to roll in a very light dusting of coconut flour and extra lemon zest if desired (this will reduce the stickiness and help them to hold together better as well).
  7. Place in the refrigerator until firm.
  8. Enjoy!
  9. I recommend storing these in the fridge until the day that you intend to eat them, so the consistency will stay the same, but they will definitely keep on the go for the day without needing to be kept cool. They may also be stored in the freezer for later enjoyment for up to 2 months.
  10. You can also chop the nuts separately with a food chopper or in a small plastic bag with a meat pounder if your blender/food processor is not designed to pulse them.
