Raw Coconut, Lemon & Honey Bites

Continuing on my 'all things raw' journey, I got the idea for these whilst I was at home sick with a cold. Now, being sick and stuck at home is not conducive to epic kitchen battles so I wanted something super easy and quick and something that could give me that much needed pick-me-up. 

For many, having a cold as a child meant sipping on a cup of fresh warmed lemon juice and honey so with that in mind, I created these. 

I was happy with the result and I literally made these in a matter of minutes. For something different, try substituting the lemon for orange juice.

Raw Honey & Lemon Balls



ingredients
1 1/2 cups moist shredded (or desiccated coconut will also work)
plus 1/2 cup for coating
1 cup almond meal
zest of two lemons
juice of one lemon
3 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
2 tbsp plain honey
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
a pinch of sea salt

method
In a bowl or food processor, combine all ingredients and mix until well combined and the mix starts to form a dough.

Using your hands, simply roll dessert spoon sized pieces into small balls. 

Sprinkle the extra coconut onto a plate and roll the balls in the coconut until well coated. Place on a plate lined with greaseproof paper and place in the fridge for about an hour to set.

Makes around 20.  



Best enjoyed within 3-4 days ( if they last that long!).
