Instead of buying KETO friendly desserts or protein bars, take a few minutes to make this fabulous energy rich munch I call CHOCOLATE KETO BALLS. These 1 inch round treats are easy and quick to make and high in protein, very low in carbs, sugar free and a convenient snack when you crave a little boost. They are perfect for vegans, cancer, Keto and Paleo people, and just about anyone who loves chocolate. See chocolate isn't the enemy. Unsweetened chocolate powder has only one carb and high in antioxidants. Unsweetened coconut and coconut oil are healthy fats and monkfruit has zero sugar and zero glycemic. So tell me, what's so bad about this dessert? Live a little.
CHOCOLATE KETO BALLS 1 3/4 cups unsweetened Shredded Coconut 2-3 Tablespoons melted Coconut Oil 3 Tablespoons Monk Fruit Sweetener (more for extra sweetness) 1/4 cup Cocoa Powder 3 Tablespoons Coconut Milk 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract 1/2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon Hilalayan Salt
1) Pour the Shredded Coconut onto a metal baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees, watching carefully, until light brown. 2) In a high speed blender (such as a Vitamix) pour the toasted Shredded Coconut and the rest of the ingredients. Blend until fully combined. The mixture should be moist but not wet and easily able to be formed into a ball. If not add more coconut oil. When refrigerated, the coconut oil will keep the balls formed without crumbling. Suggested Fillings and Toppings: Blueberries Raspberries Almonds Pumpkin Seeds Directions for Assembly: 1) In a food processor, break down the whole almonds and/or whole pumpkin seeds into tiny pieces. Place the nut and seed mixture in a small bowl and set aside. 2) Take enough mixture to make a 1" ball and press into the center. Add one raspberry or blueberry and cover it with the chocolate. Roll the mixture in the palm of your hand, forming a ball. Roll the 1" ball in the almonds or pumpkin seeds. Refrigerate until very firm. Keep refrigerated. Decadence personified. Enjoy!!!!!
