An addicting healthy, no-bake, lemon cookie made with buckwheat groats, oats, dates, lemon and coconut!
Place cashews, buckwheat groats and oats in food processor and blend until a medium to fine grind (doesn’t have to be perfect). The buckwheat may stay a bit chunky so if your looking for a smooth center use all oats. Add rest of ingredients and blend until combined and you have a doughy consistency. If you find your dough is a bit too dry try adding fresh squeezed lemon juice, 1 tablespoon at a time. Chill dough for about 20-30 minutes. Roll into 1 inch balls then roll in coconut flakes.
Makes approx. 12 – 14. Store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to two weeks.
If you don’t have buckwheat groats, replace with oats or more cashews. I love to include buckwheat wherever I can since it is a ‘superfood’ and packs a lot of protein and fiber per serving, they also have a nice nutty flavor. Per 1/4 cup serving you are getting 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber, more so than oats per serving, 1/2 cup yields 5 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber.
