- 4 T Coconut oil, melted
- 2 T maple syrup (optional)

- 1/4 cup coconut
- 8 T smooth almond butter, or just blend up almonds
- Pinch of salt
- water if needed for consistency
Combine all ingredients until well blended.
To dry to roll? Add water at end (if needed) to get a mixture that will roll easily.
To sticky? Chill in fridge for 30min.
Line tray with baking paper. Roll into small balls- can roll in coconut or chopped nuts as a topping.
Transfer to fridge and chill for 30min. Store in fridge. Can also freeze.
These are a delicious snack- the almonds mixed with cacao make it high in nutrition. Cacao is high in magnesium, zinc and iron. Magnesium is great for helping muscles relax before bed- making these good for that after dinner ‘treat’. Almonds are high in protein and healthy fats- meaning these small balls will keep you feeling fuller for longer, as well as give you that sweet hit- without all the refined sugar.
Remember they are high in energy so only have 1-2 per snack. These are perfect to take out for dessert- chilled straight from the fridge. Just make sure they don’t stay out for long, as they might soften due to the coconut oil.
