Lemon Chia Chews | http://saltandwind.com

When Lily Kunin of Clean Food Dirty City travels, she has a short list of “must-haves” to keep her sane during long flights, delays, and everything in between. These little chews have quickly made the list as her perfect travel snack. They are super refreshing, yet hearty enough to hold her over until she's reached her final destination. To stay even more refreshed (and hydrated!) she loves packing lemon towelettes and lemon wedges to squeeze into her water bottles.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup gluten free old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup raw (unsweetened) coconut flakes

    plus more for garnish

  • 8 Medjool dates

    pitted

  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 2 tablespoons Chia seeds

    plus more for garnish

  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Pinch of sea salt

    for garnish

Instructions

Line a plate with parchment paper and set it aside. Combine the cashews, oats, coconut flakes, and salt in a food processor or Vitamix. Pulse until a fine meal forms. Add the dates (make sure they are pitted!), water, chia seeds, and lemon zest. Pulse again until the mixture becomes a dough like consistency. Remove the dough and place it in a small bowl. With clean hands, roll into small round balls. 

Then, on a piece of parchment paper, roll into more coconut flakes and chia seeds as a topping. Once rolled in coconut, roll them again with your hands so that coconut sticks to the dough.Stick in the freezer to set and then pop them in a little container for travel!
