This mix was easy to make in TMX
They took 24 hours to dry in the dehydrator.
Made 27 using 4 cm.  ice cream scoop
About 70 to 80 calories per cookie
Expensive to make,  but 1 is filling
Very nice, would make again as a special treat.

The original recipe was from Rawtarian,  converted to TMX and with several small changes.

2 large lemons to produce rind, ( remove with vegetable peeler and juiced to provide 3/4 cup of juice)
2 cups of cashews
2 cups unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup Agave or Maple syrup
A few drop of lemon extract or oil, (optional)

Place all in TMX bowl and in 30 second bursts at speed 5, then speed 7 , finally speed 10. Grind mix. 
Scrape bowl down each time. 
Repeat above process until a fairly smooth mix is obtained.
Set aside in bowl that will be easy to take scoop fulls of mix. 
Using a 4 cm. scoop or a dessertspoon make small mounds on to dehydrator smooth plastic sheet.
Using damp fingers,  flatten cookies to about 6 cm.  they do not shrink.
Set dehydrator at 115f and dry for 5 hours.
Remove from plastic sheet with spatula, and place on mesh sheets.   they may stick a bit so be careful to try and maintain round shape.
Dry to desired crispness.
Cool on wire rack.
Store in air tight container.
