My lemon and lime bunny tail recipe is cute, yummy and healthy. They're a fun take on the traditional bliss balls the kids can make with you and gift for easter presents/
1 cup oats or quinoa flakes
½ cup coconut butter
¼ cup maple syrup
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 small limes, zested
1 large lemon, zested
1 cup shredded coconut, for rolling
Place oats or quinoa flakes in a food processor and pulse until they reach the consistency of a fine meal.
Add remaining ingredients (excluding shredded coconut) and pulse again until mixture comes together as a dough.
Scatter shredded coconut on a large plate. Scoop spoonfuls of mixture and roll into small balls (bunny tails), rolling each in shredded coconut until well coated. Pop onto a tray lined with baking paper and refrigerate until firm.
Oats are packed with soluble fibre which helps to fill you up and keep you feeling fuller for longer. According to studies, the beta-glucan found in oats can help to satiate your appetite for up to 4 hours. It is also found to lower 'bad' cholesterol levels - a perfect excuse to whip up another batch of these, I say.
