It was one of those days for cooking and my son had been asking me to make more of these lovely coconut lemon meltaways, a recipe that I found, at www.addictedtoveggies.com, while trying find ways of using coconut flour. Because lets face it, coconut flour is a little more difficult to use, as it absorbs so much liquid...and I feel that this recipe is perfect way to use coconut flour!
I found that this is a great little snack, as it is low in sugar but full of flavour (and nutrients)...and it doesn't need baking...only some time to dry out in the oven if you like. Another new favourite with my son.
Ingredients 1 1/2 cups Almond Flour 1 1/2 cups dried Shredded Unsweetened Coconut 1/3 cup Coconut Flour 6 Tbsp Honey (optionalRaw Organic), Ricebran syrup, Agave,
4 Tbsp Lemon Juice
2 tsp Vanilla
1 Tbsp Lemon zest 1/4 cup melted Coconut Oil
Place all dry ingredients in food processor, plus the honey, lemon juice and zest, then mix well while adding the melted coconut oil Make balls from a teaspoon full of mixture and place on a tray. You can either let it air dry a little and then place in an airtight container, or place tray in a low temperature oven for about 1hour until a little crust has formed..which is quite nice. Enjoy!
