I like to stick my freezer with sweet (healthy) treats, yo have on hand when I need an energy boost at a moments notice. And I have really gotten into the raw dessert thing this past year, having experimented with various decadent delights such as raw banana bread, strawberry nut bars, coconut macaroons and more!

Keeping in line with my well-known love for the humble coconut, I decided to create yet another bite-sized delight using the tropical treat as the main attraction. This time however, I based the cookie around creamy cashews, and took the flavour up a notch with both fresh lemon juice and zest. The result? A sinfully sweet and royally rich mound of flavor, that is both easy and quick to create!

Citrus Coconut Mounds [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Raw Vegan Vegan


  •  1 C cashews (un-soaked)
  • 2 T dried goji berries
  • 3/4 C of unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 T fresh lemon juice
  • 1 T fresh  lemon zest
  • 1 T agave nectar


  1. Process the cashews in a food processor into a coarse flour.
  2. Add the goji berries and coconut and process again until very well combined.
  3. Next, add in the the lemon juice, zest and agave. Process until well mixed and the dough starts to clump together.
  4. Form the cookies.  You can use a good quality ice cream scoop (a small one!) or as I prefer, you can scoop into rounded tablespoons, packing tightly.  Gently tap the spoon on a plate to release the cookie.
