Christmas Spiced Cashew Butter Truffles

I love a bit of nut butter..  cashew is my absolute favourite.. although am happy to eat almost any kind. This summer I had cashew nut butter on rye crackers with slices of strawberries (from our own garden!) pretty much every day for breakfast. I also like a slice of apple with a bit of peanut butter on it, good for a quick snack, great for camping & festivals where you might need a quick snack that is healthy but light.

Strawberry & Cashew nut butter on cracker

These were a bit of an experiment really, I wanted to eat something cinnamony & christmassy, but I didn’t really feel like baking… and had thought the day before after a particularly gruelling TRX workout that it would be nice to have a portable  homemade something for that sweet attack I tend to get around an hour after a gym session. And I also was thinking of the indulgent truffles I love to make(and eat) for Christmas gifts.

This hardly a recipe really, more a slightly nicer way of getting a nutty fix without spooning it out of a jar. ( nothing wrong with that mind..) 

And hey- don’t they look nice and Christmassy all covered in coconut? Very seasonally appropriate.
