Almond Joys

Here's what you need:


3 c. finely shredded, unsweetened coconut (I use unsweetened macaroon coconut)

1 1/2 c. almond flour (just blend or process whole, raw almonds into a flour in a high-powered blender)

3/4 c. pure maple syrup

1/4 c. raw honey

1/3 c. softened coconut oil

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp.sea salt

3 T. chia seeds


Chocolate Sauce:

3/4 c. coconut oil, melted

4 T. cacao powder

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 c. pure maple syrup, room temp



1. Combine coconut, almond flour, maple syrup, honey, coconut oil, vanilla, salt and chia seeds in a large bowl. Stir well until combine. Roll into balls. Place in freezer to set up.


2. Make the chocolate sauce by combining coconut oil, cacao powder, vanilla and maple syrup together. 

Stir until smooth, drizzle over almond joy balls, top with an almond and a little shredded coconut and freeze until set. 


3. Store these in the freezer or refrigerator until ready to serve. Makes about 45 almond joys.
