Healthy Life: Raw Lemon & Coconut Truffles

 It's this time of the year, towards the end of Winter, that I begin to crave light meals & snacks - warm salads, flatbread with roasted vegetables, fruit smoothies & simple stirfrys. I think my body is trying to tell me it's over all the carbs & protein I've stocked up on during these cooler months & is ready for a leaner diet.

The one thing I've consumed way too much of this Winter is sweets, in particular, chocolate. And not even the good kind! No Snickers bar or packet of Smarties are safe from me at the checkout.
Yet it was while eating said Snickers bar that I stumbled upon my saviour; these Raw Lemon and Coconut Truffles by Petite Kitchen.
A truly delicious sweet treat which hasn't left me feeling guilty, or worse, with the dreaded sugar-pimples.

They're perfect as a simple afternoon snack, are raw with no refined sugar & are a synch to make. Simply, pop the kettle on, throw ingredients in a food processor (or if you're like me and can't be bothered getting it out, mix ferociously with a wooden spoon!), roll into walnut-sized balls, coat in dessicated coconut, make yourself a cuppa & enjoy! 
Seriously, anything that takes less than 10 minutes to whip up is a winner in my book!
