Coco Nutty Balls

These are a delightfully chocolatey and coco-nutty mid-morning or mid-afternoon (after-school) treat. To be stored in the fridge or freezer.

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups shredded unsweetened coconut
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • 4 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Method

  1. Blend the shredded coconut in a food processor until the coconut is fine and slightly oily. (My nutri-bullet worked fine)
  2. Add the coconut oil and nuts and blend until the nuts are finely chopped.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until mixed together. A few nut chunks are fine and add texture.
  4. Scoop out with a spoon and roll into balls and place onto a lined baking tray or plate.
  5. Freeze for 30 minutes or store in an airtight container in the freezer.
