One of my favorite food blogs posted a recipe for coconut bites– of which I have coined Mounds. I tweaked the recipe only slightly and they turned out great.
These are easy to make and super yummy. If you are a coconut lover- I highly recommend giving these a try!
I was far too lazy to take legit photos- so an iPhone photo using a four lightbulb ceiling fan with only one working light bulb kind of quality is what you get!
1 cup coconut (I used shredded)
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon cocoa
2 tablespoons stevia
Melt 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, add shredded coconut and maple syrup. Stir until sticky and as best as you can, form a ball shape. Freeze for 10 minutes. For chocolate coating, melt 1 Tbsp. coconut oil and stir in cocoa and stevia. Dip coconut clusters in chocolate until evenly covered. Place them in the fridge for a few minutes until shell is formed.
