Zingy Lemon Coconut Balls

Very simple, lemony, nutritious & totally delicious.

1 cup of ground almonds
1 1/2 cups fine coconut
1/2 cup softened butter (softened)
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla essence
Finely grated zest of a large lemon
Juice of the same lemon

Pulse the almond & coconut in food processor until extra fine,
 then add all other ingredients & pulse/process until it all comes together as a dough.
Chill until it all firms up nicely.
Roll in to balls & then in to coconut.
Best kept chilled.

Coconut oil is a good substitute for butter if you prefer.

A tangy variation on this recipe is the addition of dried apricots & cranberries.
I soaked 1 cup of tangy "real" dried apricots in the juice of an orange for several hours before adding to the above mixture, leaving out the lemon juice & adding a handful of dried cranberries.
