Lemon & Almond Balls

My my, it has been a long time since I have blogged!  Life has just been so busy so far in the second half of this year thanks to my studies and life in general.  On a positive note though, at the end of this year, I will officially be halfway through my degree! It's been a big 4 years so far and I'm hoping it will take a lot less time to finish the second half.  Anyway, in between studying for an exam last week, I made a batch of these yummy treats.  A healthy snack to have in the fridge for when I need it!

Ingredients (makes 16 balls):
- 1 cup almond meal
- 1/2 cup activated mixed nuts
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- Zest from half a lemon
- Juice from 1/4 lemon
- 2 Medjool dates, pitted
- 1 tbsp coconut oil 
- 1tsp vanilla essence
- Organic desiccated coconut for rolling 

Add all ingredients to a food processor or Thermomix and pulse a few times until the mixture starts to come together and the contents are well chopped.  Roll into balls and then roll in coconut.  Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
