Nutrition Rich Coconut Snack
November 21, 2014
If you like coconut and having Yummy snacks that are good for you, these are it. We made a triple batch to share with our friends a few Sunday's ago and they were a big hit.
This Recipe is adapted from a Vintage Remedies recipethat is found in their Foundations of Healing Food Program.In case you don't have time to read the article I will post it and the adaptions we have made for our family here.
They call these Healing Coconut Truffles
1/4 cup coconut oil 1/4 cup maple syrup 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 tablespoon chia seeds 1/2 cup almond flour 1 cup shredded coconut, divided
Combine the first three ingredients. Set aside. In a separate bowl, combine the chia and almond with 3/4 cup of shredded coconut. Combine well. Scoop into small balls the size of a half a tablespoon. Roll in the remaining coconut. In warmer weather, store in the fridge.
We adapted the recipe by doubling it and adding 1/2 c. coconut flour and 1/2 c. almond flour. First time we made it with maple syrup but have also made it with stevia with good success.
Coconut Treats ala Raisin' Acres:
1/2 C coconut oil
3 droppers liquid stevia or 1/4 c. Truvia
2 T Chia Seeds
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
!/2 C Almond Flout
1/2 C Coconut flour
2 C coconut (1.5 C in recipe and 1/2 C to roll balls in)
Mix ingredients together in a bowl.
Form into balls and roll in coconut.
We stored these in the glass container above. They did not last long!! You won't be sorry you tried these. Let me know what adaptions you come up with.
Oh, and being a student at Vintage Remedies, I have a little secret. They are in the process of increasing their prices on the excellent courses they offer.........but..... they are going to be having a big sale starting black Friday.
So, if you have ever wondered about natural health, aromatherapy, nutritional healing, etc, check them out!!
