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!

How to Make Deb's Gluten/Sugar Free Coconut Balls

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!
