Coconut Almond Balls

Have you tried cacao nibs? A crunchy, rich whole food alternative to chocolate!


1⁄3 cup
creamy almond butter (check for preservative-free sugar-free)
1⁄4 cup
melted coconut oil
1 tablespoon
cacao nibs
1⁄4 teaspoon
1⁄4 cup
finely shredded unsweetened coconut


In a medium bowl, combine almond butter, coconut oil, cacao nibs, and vanilla. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate 30-40 minutes or until firm enough to handle. Place coconut in a small dish. Using a 1 tablespoon measuring spoon, scoop the mixture into 8 portions and drop onto the coconut. Working quickly, roll into balls. Refrigerate for 10 minutes before eating. Store, covered, in the refrigerator.  (Recipe♦302)
