These little Gems have no added sugar. The only sugar they contain is the naturally occurring sugar found in coconut butter and the small amount in very dark chocolate 80% or more.
Coconut Almond Balls
2 cups Organic Almond Meal (or your own organic ground almonds)
1/2 cup Raw Coconut Butter
2 Tb Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
1/2 tsp Almond Extract (or more if you like)
1/4 cup chopped Dark Chocolate 80% or more (you can use 70% chocolate chips if you like but they contain a bit more sugar)
More Almond Meal for rolling balls in
Place the first 4 ingredients into the bowl of a food processor. Process on low or medium until it begins to form a crumbly mixture. Add the chocolate and process until it forms into a roll or ball of dough. Using a tablespoon form into balls and roll each one into the extra almond meal before placing on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. Place into the refrigerator and let chill for at least an hour before serving. Enjoy!
