Coconut Fat Balls

My beloved fat ball recipe is here. I first posted about them on instagram but they became so popular they needed their own post on my page. I hope you enjoy them! High in fat + protein and low in sugar, these balls are to die for. I always have some on hand!

ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut shreds

  • 1/2 c. Coconut oil, melted

  • 1/4 cup coconut butter

  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds

  • 1/4 cup pepitas

  • 1/2 cup cashews

  • 1/2 cup almonds

  • 2 tbsp cacao nibs

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 3 medjool dates (pitted)

  • 1/3 c. almond milk

instructions

  1. Blend everything in a food processor until dough is achieved. Dough will be wet, that’s good!

  2. Roll into bite sized balls then lay flat on a air-tight container and freeze. They last for months but they're so delicious I bet they won't.

  3. Remove from freezer and let thaw 6 minutes before eating for optimal deliciousness!

Notes: 

  • SUGAR FREE: feel free to remove the dates completely for ultimate low sugar.

  • PROTEIN BOOST:feel free to also add vital proteins collagen peptides, or a scoop of your favorite protein powder.

  • FAT BALL COLORING: everybody's fat ball color will be different, due to a multitude of reasons. Coloring depends on things like which types of nuts you use (dry, raw, blanched, roasted), when you add the cacao nibs (add them the last 3 seconds of blending for a lighter colored ball), and how cold your freezer is. The coloring of the fat ball doesn't affect the taste or the nutritional content. If you want a lighter ball, you can add more coconut butter and less coconut oil.
