I am all about easy when it comes to cooking and baking. I saw a recipe for lemon balls which involved no baking, even better! The recipe involved soaking the nuts, grinding the nuts, slowly scraping down the sides of the food processor (which I don’t have).
I like to bake with a bowl, a spoon and a few ingredients.
Here is my simple, easy and delicious version for EASY, PEASY, LEMON BALLS. They are also very LOW SUGAR and GLUTEN FREE! It is so important to keep your blood sugar balanced. (A health coach tip!)
The lemon balls are made from nut butter so enjoy, savor and limit yourself to one. You can always have one later…
In a bowl mix,
one cup or so of almond butter
1 tablespoon of honey
1 tablespoon of coconut butter
the zest of a lemon
the juice of one lemon
Form into cute balls, 12 or so and then roll in unsweetened coconut. I had the flakes on hand which I love, it creates more of a crunch:) Refrigerate for 45 minutes.
Great snack for your kids as well!
