1 cup almond meal

1 cup desiccated coconut

2 tbsp maple syrup

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1 tsp vanilla essence


3 eggs

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup coconut oil

Zest of 1.5-2 large lemons and 1/2 cup lemon juice

Remove from heat and continue whisking for another minute.

Step 8

Immediately pour mixture through a sieve to get out any clumps.
