I bought what were advertised as being a delicious yet healthy snack - cocoa balls - from a well-known company. My husband, daughter, brother and I were really looking forward to trying them. Unfortunately we were all very disappointed. They didn't live up to the hype as far as I am concerned. So the next week I threw these together in less than 10 minutes and the time they took to set in the refrigerator and we all loved them!
1/3 cup organic nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew - whatever you like)
1/2 coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup organic cacao powder
1 Tablespoon organic maple syrup
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of Himalayan crystal salt
Combine all ingredients and mix well. Pour or spoon into mini muffin tins lined with paper mini cupcake liners. Refrigerate about an hour to set. Can also put in the freezer to speed up setting time. Keep refrigerated. Makes 12 mini muffin size cups.
