LIME IN THE COCONUT ENERGY BITES
If you love anything zesty as I do, you’re going to love these!
When I was researching how to make no-bake snacks, so many of them had peanut butter in them. Sadly, peanut butter and I have a deep-rooted hate for each other and I can’t eat it. So I decided to come up with my own recipe that was free of peanuts and peanut butter.
I wanted simplistic, easy to find ingredients and was big on flavour. Not to pat myself on the back or anything, but I nailed it.
To make it easy on yourself, you’re going to want to buy pitted dates, and make sure you get raw, unsalted almonds. I used fresh-squeezed lime juice and it makes all the difference in the world.
The almonds are perfect that little bit of protein needed to sustain you between meals. The natural sugar in dates will make you feel like you’re having an indulgent sweet treat.
- 1 Cup Raw Almonds
- 1 Cup Pitted Dates
- 1 Lime Juice squeezed
- 1 Lime Zested
- 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
- 1/4 Cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut reserve for rolling
- 1/4 Tsp Pink Himalayan Salt
If you have a small food processor like mine, I recommend blending up the mixture in 2 batches.
