no-bake vegan choc' coco balls
Recipe By: Isa Backintown
(for about 10 small balls)
1 1/2 mug of shredded coconut
2 Tablespoons of coconut cream
1 Tablespoon of raw unsweetened cocoa powder
2 Tablespoons of melted coconut oil
3 Tablespoons of maple syrup
1 Teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 pinch of Himalayan or Guerande salt
In a food processor, mix 1 mug of shredded coconut (keep the rest for later), the melted coconut oil and the cocoa powder until well combined. You may want to scrape down the sides a couple of times.
Add the coconut cream, vanilla extract, maple syrup and salt. Mix again until you get a paste.
Place the remaining shredded coconut on a plate, shape the paste into small balls and roll them into the coconut.
Refrigerate for one hour minimum. They will be perfect after a few hours in the fridge. Enjoy!
