Vegan Lemon Meltaway Balls

I just wanted to share these fun little plant based cookies with you.  The recipe comes from One Green Planet. 

Since they're raw, they're pretty easy to make. Some of the ingredients may not be something you'd normally have around.  I've been making some almond milk (see last post) and saving the leftovers for almond meal.  And I did the same with some coconut milk.  

So they turned out pretty tasty.  They're not too sweet, kinda tangy, and really do melt away.  They give me a bit of something sweet with a little less guilt.

Here's the recipe. 
  • 1 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup organic raw coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon pink himalayan salt
  • 1 – 2 tablespoon organic maple syrup (or raw honey for non-vegan)
  • 3 organic lemons (fresh squeezed juice)
  • 2 teaspoons organic vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup organic coconut oil (melted/liquid)
  1. Put all ingredients into a food processor and process until well combined.
  2. Take out about a spoonful at a time and roll them in the palms of your hand into a ball shape.
  3. Leave them plain or roll in shredded coconut flakes, almond flour, or powdered sugar (not raw).
  4. Put them in the refrigerator to firm for about 10 – 15 minutes.
  5. Keep them in the refrigerator until ready to serve because they will get soft if left out at room temperature as the coconut oil melts.
  6. Enjoy!
