I’ve been wanting to make another batch of energy balls using my dried coconut!
I finally had some time on Monday, and was excited to combine the coconut with chocolate, kind of like the Chocolate Coconut Chew Larabars.
The dried coconut is the perfect compliment to the sweet dates.
Everything chopped up nicely and the flavor was exactly what I was hoping for (sometimes these ‘recipes’ end up being more like ‘experiments’).
I did need to stream in some agave to help the balls come together. To be honest, I didn’t really measure it, but you’ll know when you’ve added enough because a ball of dough will form.
Then you can either press the ball into a greased pan to make bars or roll it into balls.
Yummy!!! Need I say more? These healthy-ish balls are FULL of flavor!
Store these balls in the fridge for an afternoon or mid workout snack!
Does anyone else try to make homemade Larabars?
What is your favorite flavor?
So I had plans to share with you the Strawberry Balsamic Quinoa Salad that I have been eating for lunch this week because it is awesome, but I didn’t get any pictures of it. I will definitely try to snap one later this week and share that recipe soon because it will be perfect for spring strawberries!
I will get your mouth watering with pictures of tonight’s Grilled Garlic Pepper Shrimp form The Grilling Bible courtesy of the BOY!
I still don’t know what’s with the Christmas plates : ) Looking for dessert, I highly recommend these Double Chocolate/Single Chin Brownies!
