This recipe for Primal Coconut Balls is quick and tasty. No cooking required, just measure, form the balls and dive in. They’re good without the drizzle of chocolate, but if you’ve been a good little boy or girl then by all means, melt that chocolate and drizzle! Enjoy. ~TH~
QUICK PRIMAL COCONUT BALLS
- 15g Almond Meal
- 10g Coconut Butter
- 1Tbsp. Butter
- 3 Tbsp. Coconut Water
- 1 Medjool Date (pitted, diced small)
- 15g Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
- 17g Dark Chocolate, 72% cacao
In a medium size bowl, combine all ingredients except the coconut flakes and the chocolate. If the mix is too dry, add a little more coconut water, if its too wet add a little more coconut flour. Now add half of the coconut flakes and combine well. Roll mixture into 4 equal size balls, about 1″ in diameter. Roll each ball in the remaining coconut flakes to coat the outside, then place the balls on a clean plate. For added decadence, melt 17g of dark chocolate* and drizzle over the balls. When chocolate cools, dive in! Extra balls can be wrapped and stored in the refrigerator.
* To melt the chocolate easily, I use our toaster oven set to 210 degrees F. Place the chocolate in a small, oven proof dish and keep an eye on it so it doesn’t scald and become bitter.
Each ball is: 135 calories, with 9 grams of carbs and 10 grams of tasty fat.
Skip the chocolate and each ball is 109 calories, with 7 grams of carbs and 8 grams of fat.
