No matter how hard I try, I’ll always have the biggest sweet tooth! So I’ve decided to accept that it will never change and I just need to make healthy alternatives! When I travel down to London, I always make sure I schedule in time to attack Wholefoods, Planet Organic and the Daylesford organic shop! I make a little dent in my bank balance but come away with lots of delicious snacks and treats! But as I don’t have any of these fabulous shops on my doorstep up north, I’ve had to get a little experimental in the kitchen, and create my own sweet treats! So far I’ve made nut butter cups, raspberry brownies and some sweet avocado boat fillings! I’ve also made quite a few raw bite recipes, this being one!
Lemon drizzle cake is probably my all time favourite cake, so light, sweet, moist and comforting and super super delicious and moreish! I’ve tried to create the same taste in a healthy bite form and I think I’ve done a pretty good job if I say so myself!
These little bites of heaven are super nutritious and the perfect size to satisfy those cravings! The perfect little ball of energy, a light post dinner treat or a little lunch box filler! Whatever the occasion, these are perfect! My whole family loves them, especially my brother! So i’m sure you will too!
PS try not to eat all the mixture out the blender before rolling them… its easily done! BELIEVE me..!!
