If you have a sweet tooth but aren't blessed with a fast metabolism then these raw almond & coconut bites are just what you need.
Made solely from natural ingredients, they are free of refined sugar and taste insanely good.
What's more is that they contain healthy fats which, research suggests, may assist with blood sugar control.
Ingredients to make 14:
3 tablespoons of almond butter
5 Medjool dates
3/4 cup desiccated coconut, pick the unsweetened variety
1 tablespoon of coconut oil, melted
2 drops of vanilla extract (optional)
Blend the almond butter, vanilla extract and dates until it resembles large crumbs. (You are looking for the dates to be chopped up as much as possible.)
Move the date/ almond mix into a bowl and combine with the desiccated coconut and coconut oil. Mix really well.
Squash into balls and refrigerate for an hour before consuming.
