Chocolate Coconut Balls from The Earth Diet



This recipe is one of my favorite recipes from The Earth Diet recipes.  It is so simple and kids love them because they are like little balls of fudgy cake! Anytime I make them, they disappear quickly!

My version has a little less cacao powder and I make them with the maple syrup option. I've never done these with honey. They come out amazing just like this, so I probably won't change a thing!

See below for a vanilla version of these that are also awesome!

Ingredients
1 cup almond meal
3/4 cup raw cacao powder
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1-2 tablespoons water
coconut flakes

Directions
Put the almond meal, cacao powder and maple syrup in a bowl. Start mixing together, if the mixture is too dry add water 1 tablespoon at a time until the mixture sticks together. If it gets a little too wet, add more almond meal. Roll into balls and roll into coconut flakes.

Here is a vanilla version:

Ingredients
1 cup almond meal
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1-2 tablespoons water
coconut flakes


Directions
Put the almond meal, maple syrup and vanilla in a bowl. Start mixing together, if the mixture is too dry add water 1 tablespoon at a time until the mixture sticks together. If it gets a little too wet, add more almond meal. Roll into balls and roll into coconut flakes.
