Preparation Time: about 20 minutes
Servings: 10 bites
- 1/4 cup almonds
- 1/4 cup cashews
- 6 dates
- 1/4 cup almond butter
- 1 tablespoon coconut cream concentrate
- 1 tablespoon lemon extract
- 1 tablespoon lemon zest
- 2 teaspoon maca powder
- optional toppings: unsweetened shredded coconut, lemon zest
In a food processor grind up your almonds and cashews until they make a grainy, flour-like consistency. Add in the dates and blend. Next, add in the rest of the ingredients (except optional toppings) and blend until the dough begins forming a ball.
Roll the mixture into 1/2 inch balls. If you are using toppings, spread them out on a flat plate and roll the balls in the toppings coating them completely and serve.
