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