I came up with the idea of these while out sailing this winter. I came across coconut butter for the very first time in my life and it was love at first bite. Then a few days later these happened. I am a sucker for coconut. In all shapes and kinds. Young, mature, shredded, as chips, as oil, butter…you name it!
They’re so easy to make and if you can’t find coconut butter in any store, you can easily make your own by just mixing 2 cups shredded coconut in the blender. Scrape down sides as needed and continue until it reaches a buttery consistency.
1 cup coconut butter
2 tbsp shredded coconut
2 tbsp coconut sugar
3 tbsp agave
pinch of vanilla
Almonds or hazelnuts
Mix all but the nuts together in a bowl, using a fork.
form little flat circles, put an almond or hazelnut on each and cover the nut while forming a ball.
Roll them in shredded coconut or chopped nuts.
Put in the fridge to set.
Keep in a sealed container in the fridge.
