Dark Chocolate-Dipped & Coconut-Topped Creamy Almond Bites

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup unsweetened, creamy almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons cacao butter, melted
  • ¾ teaspoon (approx. 3 capsules) probiotics supplement (carefully pull apart the probiotics capsules to empty the contents into the measuring spoon)
  • ¾ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Dash sea salt
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips (Enjoy brand is gluten free), melted
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes

Directions

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; place a cooling rack on another baking sheet; set both aside.

In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the almond butter, honey, melted cacao butter, probiotics, vanilla and salt; place, uncovered, in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to firm up enough to shape into balls.

Scoop the mixture into 18 balls (approx. ¾ tablespoon each) and place on the parchment-lined baking sheet; place in the freezer for 10 minutes.

Remove 6 balls from the freezer at a time, and dip one at a time into the melted chocolate, using two forks to lift the balls out of the chocolate, and placing each one on the cooling rack. After all 6 have been dipped, top with a few coconut flakes. Repeat until all 18 are chocolate-dipped and coconut-topped. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 10 minutes, then transfer the almond bites to a covered container; keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

Note: The almond bites may be refrigerated for up to 10 days or kept frozen for up to 2 months.
