Fresh Lemon Bites

Sometimes a recipe turns out to taste even better than you expected it to taste in advance. That was definately the case with these raw lemon bites. So much more fresh lemon flavour than I thought it would have, so I just had to add the adjective ‘Fresh’ to the title! The lemon not only adds loads of flavour to these bites, it adds vitamin C as well!

The lemon bites make a great snack, just one or two marble-sized bites and you’ll feel saturated for some time and they’re easy to take along with you in a small container. Of course you can take some more with you and share them with friends or family, along with a cup of tea =)

The Lemon bites are made with only 4 ingredients: 1) The lemon of course! 2) Cashews 3) Coconut and 4) a little splash of Agave. It’s not just the lemon that makes these small bites healthy, it’s the cashews as well! Cashew nuts are very high in several vitamins and minerals: Vitamin B and E and minerals such as Manganise, Potassium, Magnesium and Iron. Much better for your health than produced lemon ‘sweets’, which are loaded with refined sugar and artificial flavours!

Fresh Lemon Bites

  • 1,5 cup of Cashew nuts
  • 1/4 cup of shredded Coconut (and some extra for covering the lemon bites)
  • Zest and juice of 1 Lemon
  • 1 tbsp of Agave syrup

Add all the ingredients to a foodprocessor and blend until it forms a ‘doughy’ consistency. Use your hands to shape marble-sized balls with the lemon-cashew dough. Roll through some shredded coconut to give them a nice-looking coconut coat and set aside.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
