What’s the Best Food Processor to Buy?

We have this fantastic CuisinArt Food Processor that has lasted us years and years, so I got to say I’ve been very happy with it! It gets weekly use, and is great for chopping ingredients for sauces, making hummus, and pureeing vegetables.  It’s really basic and inexpensive and gets the job done!  I’d love to upgrade to this Ninja system eventually, which does practically everything!  But I’m pretty happy with our CuisinArt for now.

Make Coconut Bites Gluten Free for a Healthy Version

This gluten free coconut bites with lemon recipe is a simple meal to make without the wheat. I’m all about making recipes gluten free when I can. Gluten free cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around gluten free pantry staples and swapping in a few wheat-less ingredients you can make healthier meals for you and your family.

I made a list of my 125 favorite gluten free pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my gluten free recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and healthy recipes are fantastic meals for everyone at your table.

 

How Do I Make Coconut Energy Bites?

  1. Add the coconut flakes to a food processor. Blend for a minute or two until the coconut is finely shredded. Remove 1/4 if the coconut and place on a plate for later.
  2. To the food processor, add the cashews, almond flour, lemon juice, lemon zest, 2 tablespoons of water, agave syrup, vanilla, and salt. Mix for a few minutes until the batter becomes a thick paste, you should be able to roll the mix into a ball with your hands. If it is too dry and cannot be rolled by hand, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of water and blend again. If it is still too dry, add an additional tablespoon of water.
  3. Roll about 2 tablespoons of dough into a ball in your hands, then roll in the finely shredded coconut to cover. Repeat until the remaining lemon mix is gone. Freeze bites, and enjoy for a quick treat any time!
