Coco-Roons

IMG_3877This is a recipe for coco-roons, which you can buy in any whole foods market for 7.99 a bag. These are much cheaper and I would say much tastier. These are paleo, gluten free and dairy free.

Coco-Roons

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup coconut butter
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 2 T cacao nibs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 cup coconut shreds, unsweetened organic
  • 2 T maple syrup or honey (optional)

Directions:

  1. Slightly soften the coconut butter in the microwave for a few seconds or place the coconut butter jar in a pot of hot water. This will allow the coconut butter to soften and be easily pliable. Add 1/3 cup to a mixing bowl.
  2. Add and stir in the almond flour, coconut shreds, cacoa nibs, vanilla, salt, and maple syrup or honey (if desired) until combined.
  3. Use a tablespoon to measure the perfect size and roll out the soft dough into small balls. Refrigerate in between wax paper for best results.

Flavor Ideas:

  • Chocolate brownie – 1 T cocoa powder or carob powder
  • Lemon – Add 1 tsp lemon juice and zest of one lemon
  • Pumpkin spice – Add 1-2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • Berry Pie – Mash and add 1 Tbsp fresh/frozen berries
