Ingredients:

  • 3 cups cashew flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour*
  • 2 tablespoons lavender, divided (or lavendar essential oil)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest (or lime zest also works)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons raw agave nectar (or liquid sweetener of choice)
  • 1/2 cup dried coconut

Instructions:

1. To make the cashew flour: Process cashews 1/2 cup at a time in high-speed blender. Sift and re-blend the chunks until you have a silky flour. Don’t over blend or you will get cashew butter. 1 cup of raw cashews makes aproximately 1 1/2 cups of flour.

2. Mix together cashew flour, almond flour, 1 tablespoon of the lavender, lemon juice, zest, vanilla, coconut oil and agave.

3. Roll into balls and set aside.

4. Powder the coconut in a high-speed blender or coffee grinder. Mix together with remaining 1 tablespoon lavender and roll the balls in this mixture.

5. Chill to set.
