10 dates (pitted & soaked in water for 20 minutes)
1 scoop of Garden of Life RAW Protein Vanilla
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 Tablespoon Garden of Life Coconut Oil
1 teaspoon grated ginger root
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
Place walnuts, macadamia nuts, coconut flakes and protein powder into a food processor, using the S blade. Process until well mixed and nuts are broken into very small pieces.
Add remaining ingredients and pulse until well mixed.
Press mixture into a brownie pan and refrigerate for a few hours so that texture hardens.
Top with Lemon Coconut Glaze. For the Lemon Coconut Glaze, in a blender, combine ¼ cup lemon juice, ¼ cup light coconut milk, 3 Tablespoons maple syrup and 2 Tablespoons of coconut oil. Blend until smooth and refrigerate for one hour, then stir a few times and spread about ½ of the glaze on top of the lemon squares. Place pan in refrigerator again for another hour before cutting and serving. (Save the rest of the glaze mixture for a fruit dip or an ice cream topping. Lemon squares last two weeks in refrigerator or two months frozen.)
