Super easy lemon protein bites balls. Vegan & GF.

So our sweet Meyer lemon tree went from our old house to our neighbor’s house while we lived in a hotel and then moved into our new home. During that time, he traveled a lot and the tree didn’t get watered or loved. She lost most of her lemons and the 2 that did survive – my husband gave him one as a thank you. I’ve resisted picking it as long as I could but she was ready. I knew I had to use it for a good recipe and here it is. A fun little protein, fat bomb kinda lemon bite. Refreshing. Quite filling. Heart healthy. So good! We keep these in the freezer for a quick and easy dessert or pick-me-up!

Ingredients:
12 Medjool dates, pitted
1/2 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup raw cashews
Juice and zest from 1/2 lemon
1 tbl hemp hearts
1/2 cup shredded coconut
Pinch salt
1/2 cup + 2 tbl almond meal

Method:

Begin by adding your pitted dates, almonds & cashews into a jar or bowl and add hot water. Allow to soak for 30 minutes. Then drain. Add that along with your other ingredients to your food processor. Blend. You may need to scrape the sides down occasional to blend well. Then scoop (I used a small cookie scoop) balls out and place on a plate or tray. I freeze for 30 minutes then transfer to a container. I prefer to keep these frozen or refrigerated for freshness. Last 1 week in the fridge or 30 days in the freezer.

Enjoy!
