What you’ll need for the base..

– 6-8 Medjool dates

– 1 cup almonds

– 1 tsp nutmeg

– Splash of vanilla extract

– 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup

Put it together..

– Blend together almonds in a food processor until they are broken down into tiny pieces. Mix in your dates, vanilla, nutmeg, and maple syrup. Blend until a moldable mixture has formed

– Cling wrap the inside of a medium sized square dish

– Take your mixture and press it evenly onto the bottom of the dish forming the base of your lemon squares

– Freeze base for 20 minutes

What you’ll need for the filling..

– 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

– 1 banana

– 2 Tbsp melted coconut oil

– 1/2 cup cashews (soaked for an hour)

– 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup

– 1/2 tsp turmeric (For that lovely yellow color plus an extra antioxidant boost! )

– Lots of lemon zest

Put it together..

– Blend all ingredients together in a food processor until creamy (Don’t worry if the mixture is runny. It will set more once kept for cooling in the freezer)

– Remove your dish from the freezer and pour filling on top of chilled base

– Freeze lemon squares for about an hour until set

– Cut into sizeable pieces. Pulling on the cling wrap, remove lemon squares from the dish, serve on a plate, and Enjoy! 🙂

(Be sure to eat these soon after you remove them from the freezer! )
