I saw this recipe on a great blog called My New Roots. I can’t wait to try these…

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup dried mango pieces (purchase organic, unsweetened, unsulfured)
  • ½ cup unsweetened desiccated coconut, plus more for garnish
  • 1-2 tsp. creamed honey, for sweetness if desired
  • seeds of 1 vanilla bean
  • lime zest
  • pinch sea salt
  • pinch ground turmeric (optional)

Soak cashews for four hours. Drain and rinse. Soak mango for 20-30 minutes until slightly softened, but not mushy.

In a food processor combine all ingredients except honey. Pulse to combine until a sticky dough is formed. Taste for sweetness and add honey if desired.

Spoon out about a ½ tablespoon amount of mixture at a time and roll into a ball with your hands. Roll in coconut to coat. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Makes approx. 20.
