Choc, Coconut & Chia Seed Bites

After a 3pm sweet treat minus the guilt? These Choc, Coconut & Chia Seed Bites offer a tasty, nutty substitue.

Choc, Coconut & Chia Seed Bites

Ingredients

Coconut Butter

1 ½ tablespoons of honey

2 tablespoons almond meal

Water from 1 fresh young coconut

2 tablespoons cacao/ cocoa powder

Peanut butter (homemade is best)

Chia seeds

To make the coconut butter

2-3 cups of desiccated coconut

Place coconut in a high speed blender. Blend until coconut starts to form a smooth paste. This can take up to 15 minutes.

Note: You may need to stop the blender intermittently to redistribute the coconut in the blender and give it a little bit of  break so that it doesn’t overheat.

Grease a mini muffin pan. Combine coconut butter with honey, almond and coconut and process until combined. Spoon a teaspoon of mixture into the prepared pan holes.

Put remaining mixture back into the food processor and add cacao/cocoa powder. Spoon a teaspoon of coconut mixture into the pan holes. Spoon half a teaspoon of peanut butter over each chocolate layer.

Sprinkle over chia seeds and place in the fridge for 20-30 minutes until set.
