There are days when I just crave something sweet (hands up if you have those days too 🙂 ). Normally I just get up and go to the grocery store to buy something. But lately, I follow a different strategy. I make the desserts and sweets at home 🙂 It is much cheaper, I have fun in the kitchen making it, and I exactly know what is inside 🙂 So if you do want to join me, you can start with this super easy recipe – a dark chocolate coconut & almonds balls (VeGaN). Have fun cooking and enjoy 🙂

  • 200g of sliced and peeled almonds (you can buy them in the store or use the whole but peeled almonds too)

  • 100g of dark chocolate

Directions

  1. Place the coconut shavings, the sliced almonds and the coconut flour in a blender and blend until combined.
  2. Melt the coconut oil in a small pan and add the agave syrup, and season with a pinch of salt. Mix well until the ingredients are well combined.
  3. Mix the liquids with the coconut-almond mixture and place in the fridge (or freezer for 5 minutes). Thanks to this the dough will be a bit thicker and better for ball making.
  4. Take out the dough from the fridge and start making a ping-pong ball sized balls. You should be able to make 10-12 balls.  Once you created the balls place them on a plate and put back to the fridge for 30-35 minutes.
  5. Melt the dark chocolate over a water bath. Takeout the balls from the fridge and dunk in a hot melted chocolate. Place the balls back to the plate, sprinkle with some coconut shavings and let the chocolate thicken again. You can speed up the procedure by putting the balls back to the fridge.
  6. Enjoy 🙂
