Foodie Friday - Health Almond Joy Bites

I love chocolate & I love coconut so these = PERFECTION in my book. If you have a sweet tooth like me but try to eat clean and healthy, these will definitely do the trick!
Healthy Almond Joy Bites
Serves: 8
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon organic raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of fine sea salt
  • ½ cup organic black & greens 85% cacao bar
  1. In a medium bowl, combine the shredded coconut, coconut oil, honey, water, vanilla and salt, and mix well. Let sit for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Using a tablespoon, drop the coconut mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, creating bite-sized mounds.
  3. Place the plate in the freezer for 15-20 minutes, to allow the coconut mounds to firm up. They should become pretty solid, thanks to the coconut oil!
  4. While the coconut filling is setting in the freezer,  start melting the dark chocolate.
  5. Using a spoon, coat each coconut mound with a dollop of melted chocolate, spreading the coating around evenly to cover every last inch! If you'd like to coat the bottoms, as well, allow the first coating of chocolate to set in the freezer (about 10 minutes) then dip the bottoms in chocolate and freeze again on the parchment paper to set.
  6. Serve slightly chilled for best texture, and enjoy!
