- 150g Coconut, desiccated
- 1/2 cup Coconut oil, liquified - if hard, place it in a bowl in the microwave to liquify it.
- 30g (1/4 cup) Coconut flour
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup Chocolate or cacao powder, sugar-free
- 1/2 cup Coconut milk, full fat, as it usually contains less sugar and carbs than low-fat/light versions
- 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon (optional) Salt, Himalayan Rock Salt
- Desiccated coconut Optional extra for coating the balls
- Optional - add to taste Artificial or natural sweetener, Not sugar. I use Stevia whenever I want to add some sweetness.
- Place the extra desiccated coconut in a bowl on its own if you are going to coat the balls in it.
- Combine all other ingredients in a large bowl and mix well with an electric mixer. The mixture should look crumbly but it should be sticky enough to not crumble when pressed together, see photos below.
- Rolls the mixture into balls to the desired size then roll them in the extra coconut to coat them - you can omit this step if you choose not to coat them.
- Place the balls on a plate and leave them in the freezer for 30 minutes to harden.
- Remove from the freezer and they are ready to eat.
- These balls should be stored in an air-tight container in the fridge to keep them hard and fresh. They will keep fresh for up to two weeks if kept refrigerated.
