Raw Lemon Meltaways

Posted May 31 2012 8:00am
How about a sweet, refreshing treat today?

These raw, bite-sized Lemon Meltaways are naturally sweetened with a touch of honey, and are bursting with tart lemon flavor! Loaded with healthy fats from coconut oil and a hearty dose of magnesium from raw cashews (good for bone health!), these melt-in-your-mouth confections taste decadent, but can be enjoyed guilt-free.

The best part? They can be whipped together in minutes!


makes 12-15, depending on size

adapted from Everyday Raw

Ingredients:

1/2 cup raw cashew butter
3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 Tablespoons raw honey
3 Tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch sea salt
2 teaspoons lemon zest (optional)

mini paper baking cups

Directions:

In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix until very smooth and creamy.

On a baking sheet, lay out the mini baking cups (I recommend double-layering them for sturdiness, or using silicone baking cups ). Spoon the batter into each cup, then place in the freezer to set for 30 minutes, or until solid.

Garnish with additional lemon zest, if you like, and serve immediately!

These “meltaways” will do just that–> they’ll melt away if left at room temperature too long! Be sure to serve frozen, so they’re nice and firm, like a lemon bar with a texture reminiscent of cheesecake.

: If you’re in the mood for a more traditional lemon bar, feel free to add a raw graham cracker crust to the bottom of each cup! You could even double the recipe above, and make an entire 8″ pan of raw lemon bars.

(I’m just impatient and prefer to eat the filling as quickly as possible.)
