I joined up this week for Fun with Food Friday! Check out my recipe below, and then go see what recipes Mama Chocolate is sharing! This week is Grilled Mozzarella Tomato Sandwiches!
Joy's Coconut Ball Recipe
1/2 cup Organic Raw Cacao powder
1 1/2 cups Unsweetened shredded Coconut
1 1/2 cups Organic rolled Oats
3/4 cup Coconut Oil (do not melt)
1/2 cup Raw honey or maple syrup ( I used Raw Unfiltered Honey, organic)
Combine dry ingredients and mix well. Add coconut oil and honey, and stir to combine. Mold into small balls by using a spoon, ice cream scoop or your hands. Place in a dish of your choice and freeze for minimum 30 minutes and enjoy. These are best when frozen or refrigerated.
Added a couple drops of Peppermint Essential Oil (5 drops for a full batch). Mmmm, delicious. Joy likes to substituting the oats for chopped almonds to make the coconut almond balls that were at the party. For the fudge, I leave out the shredded coconut and the oats and I add a couple tablespoons of chia seeds.
This recipe made about 40 medium size balls. I think this is a really rich treat and would like to find a smaller scoop than the small pamper Chef scooper I used. Absolutely delicious and kids kept asking for more. My kids loved this treat! Next time I will try to substitute half the oats for almonds and meal both together in a processor. Also, the honey made these a little too sweet. We will try to use a 1/4 cup of honey instead of the full 1/2 cup. Joy, it was an absolutely delicious treat and will love sharing this with friends and family!
