gET COOKING AND SNACKING WITH THESE DELICIOUS AND FRESH BITES.

2 cup                raw cashews

1 cup                 dried dates, chopped

1 cup                 raw almonds

1                        lime, zest, and juice

2                       lemon, juice           

1 cup                 coconut, desiccated

½ tsp                turmeric, ground

 

Step 1.

Boil the kettle and cover raw cashews, almonds, and dates with hot water. Soak for 5-10 minutes.

Step 2.

Drain half the water from the nut and date mixture, discard. Place the remaining water and mixture into a food processor. Blitz until chunky. If your food processor struggles, give it a helping hand by chopping some of the nuts before blitzing. Note: A mortar and pestle works wonders also!

 

 

Step 3.

Add the citrus juices and zest of lime. Pulse 2 – 3 times to spread the juice and zest throughout the mix.

Step 4.

Add the coconut to a small pot and place on a medium to low heat. Stir consistently. Add the turmeric and continue to stir. When the coconut becomes fragrant and lightly toasted, remove from the pot and place in a bowl.

Step 5.

Using wet hands, spoon out an approximately about a tablespoon of the mixture into the palm of your hands. Roll the mixture into a ball. Place into the coconut turmeric mixture and use a fork or spoon to coat each side.

Step 6.

Refrigerate for 20 – 40 minutes before serving or place into a container and store in the fridge for the week ahead. Alternatively, freeze in packs of 2 – 3 and use them as treat for the kids lunch boxes.
