Nutty Lime Balls

in Holidays,Sweet Treats

These tasty treats are the next best thing to chocolate in my book and I like to have one as an evening treat instead of the stimulation that chocolate might offer.


  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup almonds (or you can choose whatever nuts you like)
  • 1-1 1/2 t lime zest
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 T honey, or sweetener of your choice
  • 1 T coconut flour
  • 1 T almond flour (or omit one of them, and do 2 of 1 kind)
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 2/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut to roll balls in

Here’s How:

  1. Place nuts in food processor and grind till a coarse consistency.
  2. Add remaining ingredients except for shredded coconut and grind.
  3. Make balls whatever size you enjoy (I like them the diameter of a nickel) and roll in shredded coconut.
  4. Chill and store in airtight container in fridge.
