I am always making some kind of chocolate flavoured protein balls or truffles….well today I thought I’d be different, a totally different flavour! Why not have a nice tangy refreshing flavour in ball!! Introducing a Lemon inspired truffle and its goooooooood!!! A nice healthy treat for the kids too. My almost 12 year old loves lemon flavoured sweets so these she loved!!
Nutty Lemon Truffles
1 cup mixed nuts (I used a mix of cashews, macadamia’s and almonds)
10 pitted dried dates
2 Tbsp shredded coconut plus extra for rolling
zest of one lemon
2-3 Tbsp lemon juice
In a processor add the nuts, dates and coconut and process until it recembles even smallish crumbs (a little bigger than bread crumbs). Add Lemon zest and 2 tablespoons of juice and pulse to combine. This should make the dough rollable and not too wet but enough to have coconut coat the balls. Taste the mixture, if you want more lemon or need the mixture more wet add another tablespoon of lemon juice. Roll into 12 balls (well it should make 12 if you dont keep eating the mixture lol…oops) Coat in coconut and let harden a little in the fridge or freezer. Store in freezer and the balls will last a couple of month in an air tight container.
