Recipe: Dark chocolate coconut bites

I just spotted this recipe online, and made it for the boys: a big hit, and super easy. This would be a great snack after school, sure, and also a nice treat after a meal (for both big and little people; you don't have to share if you decide not to). This is an easy recipe that kids can even make on their own.

Dark Chocolate Coconut Bites original recipe found on Shewearsmanyhats.com Yield: 18 - 20 Ingredients: 1/2 cup (4oz) coconut oil 1/2 cup dark cocoa powder 1/8 cup maple syrup 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 3/4 cup unsweetened finely shredded coconut, lightly toasted

1 tsp cinnamon 1/4 cup almond flour Directions: Heat a medium saucepan over low heat. Add coconut oil and cocoa powder. Stir until smooth and all coconut oil has melted. Remove from heat. (My coconut oil is already liquid, so I skipped the step to heat everything and just started mixing in a smallish bowl.) Whisk in maple syrup and vanilla extract. Add toasted coconut, cinnamon and almond flour; stir until combined well. Cover mixture and place in refrigerate until firm enough to easily form balls, about 20 to 30 minutes. More chill time may be needed. Line a plate with wax paper or baking parchment. Shape chilled coconut mixture into 1-inch balls (I used a small cookie scoop to make sure each one was the same size, and then rounded them in my hand. It’s a little messy but the kids might like to help.) Place on prepared surface. Chill in fridge at least another hour. If you’re in a hurry to eat them, put them in the freezer instead. Once they are fully hardened, you can store them in an airtight container for up to a week. Balls may also be frozen in an airtight freezer-safe container for up to 3 months.
