These are SO easy and delicious - plus there's no sugar other than that from the dates (still high sugar, but I tried to leave out any excess) and you can roll these babies in shredded coconut to make them look like cottontails for Easter. 

Lemon Macaroons

Prep time: 15 minutes   Cook time: None   Total time: 15 minutes

Yield: About 20 macaroons



1.  Add Brazil nuts and pistachios to a food processor or high-power blender (like a Vitamix) and pulse until they are broken into a fine meal.

2.  Add dates, salt and lemon juice next, pulsing again until a dough forms.  Add in water after this is well-mixed, if needed.

3.  Mold dough into 1 1/2-inch balls.  Roll each ball in the shredded coconut or other desired toppings, then place on a plate to serve.  If not serving immediately, store in fridge so they retain their shape.

1 cup Brazil nuts

1 cup pistachios, shelled

8 medjool dates

Juice of 1 lemon (can adjust to taste)

Pinch of sea salt

2 tbsp water, if needed for texture

Optional: Shredded coconut or other fun toppings to roll them in!
