Serves: 15

Prep: 15 Minutes

Cook: N/A

Ingredients

  • 125g macadamias (you can substitute cashews or ground almonds)
  • 45g coconut flour
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • Pinch Himalayan pink salt
  • 1 tbsp Xylitol, honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp cashew butter
  • 30g 85-90% dark chocolate, finely chopped

Top Tip: You can put Xylitol through a coffee grinder so it has a finer texture for any recipes.

Directions

  1. Place the nuts and coconut flour in a food food processor and pulse in a fine meal.
  2. Add the coconut oil, salt, sweetener, vanilla, cashew butter and blend. The mixture should form a dough, if it needs more moisture add a little coconut oil, if too oily add a little more coconut flour.
  3. Stir in the chocolate and roll into bite size balls and store in the refrigerator, these keep well but may dry a little over time.
