Cocoa and Coconut Snacks

Submitted by: SUZUKIBEANE
Cocoa and Coconut Snacks

Introduction

As a general guideline for your first batch, using a 1/2 cup of each nut will yield more than a dozen little balls. Dates add the sweetness but also help hold the balls together so if you canít get the paste to hold its shape, try adding a few more. Coconut oil also helps with this. If you donít have the patience to roll a dozen or more little balls, simply spread the paste out evenly in a baking pan and sprinkle with coconut. Whether you eat them as balls or bars, Coltingís Cocoa and Coconut Snacks are a good solution to afternoon hunger pangs.

  • Sounds good. Coconut oil is a very healthy fat, as are the nuts. I don't like coffee, so I'll try this when I can find a substitute for the coffee. - 8/7/10
