This is my new favorite sweet treat. It's just five organic ingredients and is super simple to put together. This raw, vegan treat is packed with lots of energy from coconut oil and shredded coconut. You can sweetened this recipe with raw honey, maple syrup or even vanilla stevia for a sugar free version. I added in some other variations at the end. I'm sure there are even more to try. Recipe can be halved or doubled. So get going and make some Coconut Love Bombs to share with the ones you love!
- 1 cup coconut oil - room temperature works best. It should be a little soft, like cream cheese, and easy to blend. Liquid oil needs to be cooled in order to work well in this recipe.
- 1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
- 6 tablespoons honey or a few drops of Vanilla Stevia
- Pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (If not using vanilla Stevia)
Mix everything together well.
Use a 1 tablespoon scoop to shape the dough into little half moons.
Place on a baking sheet and freeze for about 30 minutes.
Keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator and serve cold.
Substitute 1/2 cup of coconut oil for 1/3-1/2 cup peanut butter or coconut manna. I used peanut butter, and they came out better than Butterfingers!
Substitute the honey with 4 tablespoons maple syrup or agave.
Add 1 teaspoon Chai spices to the original recipe.
After freezing, dip in melted chocolate, freeze again until the chocolate coating is set.
The original recipe sounds good too, I found it on the side of my Nutiva Coconut Oil container:
