ALMOND BUTTER COCONUT SQUARES

Here’s the first time I’ve ever thought of creating and making a raw dessert bar. I’ll be honest everything is trial and error, and even though these came out pretty delicious there’s room for improvement, and I know just what will make them tastier!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Raw Almond Butter
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Oil (Extra Virgin Un-Refined Cool Pressed – basically pure/raw) [I reduced amount of coconut oil ūüėČ ]
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Dried Coconut (shredded or flakes — don’t use desiccated coconut!!!)
  • 4 tbsp 100% Pure Maple Syrup or Agave Nectar (Here’s where I went wrong, I didn’t add enough, so they tasted too much like coconut oil )
  • Cacao Nibs
  • Spirulina
  • More Unsweetened Dried Coconut

Directions

  1. In high powered blender or food processor, blend the Unsweetened Dried Coconut until creamy butter forms; about 4ish minutes depending on blender type
  2. When coconut butter is formed, add in Raw Almond butter, Coconut Oil, and Maple Syrup or Agave Nectar and blend until all three ingredients are well blended
  3. Put parchment paper on a cookie sheet and with spatula evenly spread the mix
  4. Toppings: Add the desired amount of cacao nibs, unsweetened dried coconut, and spirulina
    1. I recommend not going to heavy on the toppings because you don’t want your bar to be too busy!
  5. Freeze for about 1 hour or longer then take it out and cut large bar into small squares and place them in a small container and keep these in the freezer

WAAALLAAA!!!! I hope you guys love these as much as I did!! I’m thinking maybe I can come up with a Nice Cream recipe to go along with these for a real sweet tooth buster or perhaps just along with a fruity smoothie?! hmm we’ll see.¬†xoxo¬†
