I've been meaning to, & have promised to many, that I would post about these little yummy, healthy bites... so here it is! A perfect post-exercise or travel snack. Great to have on hand to keep from getting HANGRY.
What you need:
1C cashews (raw)
8 medjool dates (pitted)
1C shredded coconut (unsweetened)
1/2t good vanilla extract
1T honey or maple syrup (optional; again, the good stuff!)
pinch himalayan sea salt
3-4 drops lemon certified pure therapeutic grade essential oil (what is this?)
1-2T warm water
What to do:
Blend cashews & dates in a food processor until integrated.
Add half the coconut (reserve the rest for later), vanilla, sea salt, honey/maple syrup, lemon certified pure therapeutic grade essential oil , blend again. Add 1T at a time of warm water until mixture starts coming together enough to form.
Lightly wet hands & roll into bite-sized balls to your desired size. Then roll in the remaining coconut. Place on a plate or baking sheet. Once all done, put the sheet into the freezer for at least 30mins before eating.
