I love key lime…pie. It is just so darn good. I like it so much it is the dessert I use to request for my birthday (when I still lived at home). While key limes are not the same as limes – I used regular limes in this recipe since that is what I had on hand (not to mention key limes are not so easy to find in stores right now).
These have a great combo of tart with sweet that will be sure to jolt you with the energy you seek (:

Ingredients: (Makes 10-12 bites)
1/2 cup dates
1/4 cup cashews
2 tbsp. shredded unsweetened coconut
zest of half a lime
juice of half a lime (a little less than a tbsp)
2 tbsp. flax meal
1/2 tbsp. water
In a food processor, blend the dates until they come together into a single mass. Set aside in a bowl.
Food process the cashews until they are tiny chunks – you don’t want a paste because you want some texture.
Add in the dates, coconut, lime zest, lime juice, flax meal and water and pulse a few times until you have a homogenous mixture.
Shape into 1 in. balls (bites) and refrigerate.
