Dark chocolate coconut bliss bites are a healthier sweet treat! Be kind to your Valentine this year with an indulgent (not-so-guilty) treat they’ll love. A no-bake recipe, too!
Dark chocolate coconut bliss bites are what I call a “Paleo cheat” treat. True Paleo avoids sugar in all forms, except what is naturally occurring in fresh fruit. However, since I modify Paleo to work with my food obsessions, an occasional treat, such as this one, keeps me sane and from diving into a double chocolate bundt cake.
Enjoy the recipe, and spread the love this Valentine’s Day by sharing a box full of dark chocolate coconut bliss bites.
3/4 cup organic cacao
1/2 cup organic coconut oil, melted and cooled
1/2 cup organic agave nectar (adjust the sweetness to your taste buds)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
*can also add 1/4 cup chopped nuts of your choice
In a large bowl, stir together cacao and coconut oil until smooth. Stir in agave nectar, sea salt and vanilla and mix well. Stir in coconut and add a bit more agave, if needed for desired sweetness. Mixture should be thick. Drop by the the teaspoon onto wax paper or pour into molds and refrigerate until firm.
Store in the refrigerator in an air tight container. Enjoy.
