These taste so good despite being good for you! They have remarkably little sugar, but taste very sweet. Enjoy as a desert, or treat them as an energy ball!
- 1+ cups of shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup of coconut oil or coconut butter or cacao butter*
- 1/8 cup of peanut/almond butter
- 5 T raw cacao powder
- 2 T maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
*All three work, but you may want to experiment with which you like best. I like coconut butter the best, but it is expensive. As is cacao butter, which is the most decadent. As a result, I typically just use coconut oil. You can also use some of all three. Coconut oil is the most common, but doesn't hold together as well, which is why I add the nut butter. If you use coconut butter, you can probably get away without the other nut butter, but I also happen to like the taste and added protein. Your choice! Make multiple different batches and experiment!
Mix all ingredients together in a food processor until it starts to stick together. Form into balls, or any fun shape you desire, and keep in the fridge. Relish in yummy goodness!
