These energizing little bombs are perfect bite-sized deliciousness – what more do you want or need?

Well, here’s what you’ll need to make them {makes 20}:

2 tbs nut butter of your choice
3 tbs coconut oil {soft}
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp xylitol
2 tbs cocoa powder {unsweetened}
1 cup desiccated coconut
2 tbs almond flour

This is so super-easy, you don’t even need any electricity to make these – which is a big selling-point these days… {Just saying!}

So – just go ahead and mix everything together.
If the coconut oil you’re using is rock-solid, just melt it slightly. In the current summer’s heat, it’ll probably be liquid in any case…

Spoon teaspoon-sized dollops into a fun ice tray – I used flowers and fishes.

You will need to freeze these for about half an hour, just to set them and from there you can keep it in the fridge.
{Fine, so you do just need a teensy bit of electricity in the end – but you can still make these when the power is out.}

These are fantastic as a pre-workout fuel, as well as a great mid-afternoon filler or when you’re on the go and can’t eat.

You can just have them as a treat too…

Enjoy! x

      Hi Louise,

      It’s like peanut butter. You get a variety of nut butters – almond, macadamia, etc.
      It’s basically nuts ground to a paste with some added plant-based oils.

      Hope that helps! X
