Raw Lemon Coconut Truffles--Try These!

I came across this recipe a couple of days ago. Now, I'm always trying to find things everyone here will or can eat. Jo is lactose-intolerant and we're all gluten-free (except Lou--she eats it sometimes but not here). We try to limit our grains and sugars, though we're hardly saints. I'm especially trying to find high-energy foods Jo will eat; she's not anorexic--thinks she looks just fine, thanks--but she does have trouble eating sometimes. Long story.

Anyway, when I saw this I knew I had to try it. I love lemon anything, and this is raw, no-bake, grain-free, dairy-free, gluten-free and egg-free. (We don't have trouble with eggs, but you might.) The main problem you might have with this recipe is that it's based on almond meal, and some folks have trouble with tree nuts. It has honey in it, so it's not vegan, but you can probably add your own favorite sweetener.

Verdict: Fast! Delicious! Pretty (see picture)! Lou hates coconut, so they don't work for her, but otherwise, we have a hit. The recipe is from the petite kitchen, which is new to me and has lots of goodies to peruse.
