These raw, nutty bites make a lovely, dairy-free alternative to chocolate for an after-dinner nibble
Prep:20 mins No cook
Nutrition per serving
2 x 90g packs fresh coconut pieces
50g macadamia nuts
2 tbsp raw coconut oil
2 tbsp raw honey (see tip)
1 vanilla pod
Why choose raw?
I’ve used all raw ingredients, as they have a fuller flavour than commercial versions. They also retain their natural enzymes, which are mostly destroyed during pasteurisation. These enzymes can have a beneficial effect on digestion – however, this recipe would be just as delicious with your favourite honey. We used Hill Top Honey, available from hilltop-honey.com and ocado.com.
Blend the coconut and macadamia nuts together in a food processor until very finely chopped. Take out 5 tbsp of the mixture and reserve on a plate.
Tip the coconut oil, honey and vanilla into the blender and blitz until combined.
Divide the mixture into 18 balls, then roll them in the reserved coconut & nut mixture. Serve immediately or store in the fridge until needed. Will keep in the fridge for up to 2 days.
