Turmeric Macadamia Sunshine Bites (Vegan, Low-Carb)

Print

These turmeric macadamia sunshine bites are not only pretty but also tasty and healthy, and super easy to make, lectin free, sugar free. They are made of coconut flakes, macadamia butter and my (NOT so) secret ingredient, the Turmeric Tonic created by the amazing ladies at Further Food.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

These easy to make 4-ingredient sunshine bites make the perfect afternoon pick-me-up snack! We love turmeric so much because it is a natural anti-inflammatory that has been shown to help reduce joint pain and boost immunity! The coconut contributes its heart healthy HDL cholesterol along with satiety from its natural fat sources.
