Homemade Mounds

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!

Ingredients:

1 cup coconut (I used shredded)
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon cocoa
2 tablespoons stevia

 

Instructions:
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.

 

Enjoy!

Energy Bite Recipe

I am a big fan of quick, healthy, grab-and-go treats.  They work great for pre-workout snacks as they contain a perfect combo of carbohydrates and protein.  They also work for sustaining energy, as proven this weekend when we ate an entire batch of them during the Market to Market.

They take mere minutes to throw together and only seconds to eat.  Be careful to not eat the entire batch.  🙂
