I’ve been practicing all sorts of raw, gluten free recipes this week for our christmas guest trip. Healthy is the operative word and gluten free seems to be the trend with this family, so when I came across this recipe on a friends Women’s Health site, I thought it could be a possible winner.
And a winner it was! No sooner had I finished a batch had they disappeared. Its the perfect ‘go to’ snack when you get the 3pm sweet munchies, and goes cracker with a cup of englands finest!
Lime, goji and coconut balls.
