Equipment

  • Food Processor

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp oats
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

Instructions

  • Blend cashews, shredded coconut and oats in a food processor until roughly chopped.
  • Add the remaining ingredients (chia seeds, maple syrup, lemon zest and juice, vanilla extract, almond extract, and salt) to the food processor. Blend/pulse until all the ingredients are combined and a sticky mixture forms. Add in the blueberries and pulse a few times (don’t overblend so you can still see pieces of blueberry).
