Date & lemon truffles (GF, vegan)
So Alon and I were in a book shop the other day and he had to pee. What a surprise, child, didn't see that one coming at all!
There we went to inspect another public toilet (which was locked) and went to pee outside (there was grass, don't worry about it).
Alon is standing there, ready to pee and says "Ima, can you go somewhere else?"
The loss of innocence was happening in front of my eyes in that particular moment. I think I was suppose to be sad, but I found it so cute!
He is going to be one cute adult one day :D and hopefully by then he'll know how to hold it.
3/4 cup cashew nuts
2 1/2 cups dates, pitted
juice and zest of 1 1/2 lemons
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
Shape into small balls and roll in the coconut.
*The truffles turn out pretty sour. If you don't like sour too much reduce the amount of lemon juice and add orange juice or water.
