Ingredients:

 

Super yummy chocolate coconut balls are an easy sweet treat requiring no fancy kitchen equipment beyond a bowl, a spoon, and your hands.

  • 2/3 c. raw agave nectar
  • 1/3 c. raw coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  2. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until well incorporated.
  3. Put the bowl in fridge to chill for 1/2 hour or more.
  4. Take a tablespoonful of the chocolate coconut mixture and form into a ball with your hands.
  5. Chill the formed balls until ready to serve.
