Coco nutty butter balls

IMG_3809These are super simple, like 10 minutey start-to-finish. Makes about 20-25 balls, depending on how big you like your balls (oo-er missus).

The original recipe called for peanut butter. What’s not to like? But if you’re Paleo, your views on peanuts may differ, so I have mixed about two parts almond butter with just one part peanut butter as an alternative.

For the balls:-

1 1/2  cups of nut butter

Generous 1/4 cup of coconut flour (I used Tiana)

1/8 cup agave nectar, or honey

Mix the whole lot in a bowl until it comes together into a sort of cookie-dough type consistency.

Form little balls in the palm of your hands (it should not be sticky) and place on greaseproof paper.

Refrigerate for half an hour or more.

For the chocolate coating:- Melt about 100g of dark chocolate (70% plus) in a bain marie and leave to cool for a few minutes. Drop the little coco nutty balls into the chocolate goop one at a time until they are coated all over.

Pop them back in the fridge to set for a little while, then enjoy.
