I have been doing gluten free for a while and lost weight! This recipe makes 8 balls. You can replace the Chocolate with Carob is you wish. This dessert snack is delicious!

Ingredients

2 Tbsp
coconut oil, melted
1 c
ground unsweetened coconut (divided)
2 Tbsp
powdered cacao or carob
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp
celtic sea salt
1/2 tsp
liquid stevia
1/4 tsp
pure almond extract
1/2 c
toasted nuts or seeds ground medium

Step-By-Step

1Melt the coconut oil in a pan on the stove.
2Put it in a shallow bowl and add in the chocolate powder. Mix it together well.
3Put 3/4 cup of ground coconut into the bowl and mix well. Save the other 1/4 cup of coconut to roll the balls in.
4Now add your vanilla, stevia, sea salt and almond extract into the chocolate coconut mixture. Stir well.
5Add in the ground nuts. Try to keep some chunks of nuts in the mix, they taste great that way. I used pecans and they were delicious.
Refrigerate for 10 minutes. These will stay together better when rolling.
6If you like, use plastic gloves to roll these up. It keeps your hands cleaner.
7Make 8 balls and roll in the reserved 1/4 cup of ground coconut. Store in the fridge.
8Enjoy!
