A nut-free coconut energy ball? Finally! Energy balls, or bites, are great for a delicious quick snack and there’s a gazillion recipes out there- but most of them are made using peanut or other nut butter. Pretty limiting for anyone with a nut allergy.
Enter these delightful nut-free coconut energy balls- made from coconut butter instead of nut butter. The hardest part might be just warming the coconut butter (I set the jar in a bowl of hot water).
Give the mixture a simple mix and roll. Boom- yummy nut-free energy bites.
nut-free coconut energy balls
2 tbls coconut butter
1/4 cup shredded coconut
2 tbls hemp seeds
1 tbls ground flax seeds
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbls maple syrup
Optional: extra hemp seeds and shredded coconut to roll the balls in
Warm the coconut butter so it’s stir-able.
Mix together all ingredients. Use a small cookie scoop, scoop about 1 tablespoon-size and roll into a ball. Roll the balls into the hemp seeds and shredded coconut.
Chill in fridge/freezer.
Note: this makes a small batch of about 12 tablespoon balls. Simply double or triple for a larger batch.
