raw cacao coconut “bliss” balls

Raw Cacao Coconut balls. Holy Cow these things are good.

  • 1 T coconut oil
  • 1 cup raw cashews (soak for 2 hours)
  • 1-2 T coconut butter
  • 2-3 T almond butter
  • 1/8 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • pinch of ground clove
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 2 raw, pitted dates
  • 2-3 T raw agave nectar
  • 1/4 t sea salt
  • 1/4 cup shredded dried unsweetened coconut in the batch + additional for rolling
  1. Mix everything except for the coconut flakes together in a bowl until well combined.
  2. Using your palms, roll the mixture into little balls, slightly smaller than golf balls (you can makes them bigger or smaller, depending on preference)
  3. Roll the balls onto coconut flakes, coating evenly.

(I added a hint of rum to half of the batch. Detracts from the raw awesomeness, but it makes it SUPER yummy 🙂 )
