You asked for more lemon recipes – I deliver! These little gems are vegan, gluten-free and a great portable snack. You can make a big batch and have them in a freezer to snack on throughout the week.
Lemon Ginger Date Bites (makes 12 bites)
1 cup of pecans
1 cup of dates, pitted
2 tbsp of dried mango (roughly chopped)
1/4 tsp of turmeric
1 tsp of poppy seeds
1/2 tsp of minced, fresh ginger (or 1/4 tsp dried)
1 heaping tbsp of large flake coconut (shredded should work fine if you don’t have large flake)
2 tbsp of coconut water
1 tbsp of maple syrup
the juice and zest of half a lemon
Place the pecans in a food processor and process until they break down into a fine crumble. Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse until well combined and the mixture is sticky and dough-like. Rinse your hands (best to work with wet hands), use a tablespoon to scoop out the mixture, roll it into a ball and place on a plate. Repeat until you run out of mixture, it should make about 12 medium-sized bites. Keep them stashed in the freezer.
These are a great snack all around, I especially enjoy them before or after a good workout. Enjoy!
