Lucious Cocoa Peanut Butter Balls
2 cups peanut butter (organic, unsalted)
1 cup finely shredded coconut (organic)
2 Tb raw honey (more to taste)
Mix the above ingredients. If the dough is too sticky to handle, add small amounts of almond flour or coconut flour until it is a consistency to form into balls. Shape into 3/4" balls and refrigerate for about an hour.
1 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup organic unsweetened cocoa powder
Mix the coconut oil and honey in a blender until smooth. Add cocoa powder and mix thoroughly. In one small bowl, place the cocoa mixture. In a second small bowl, place additional shredded coconut. Roll each peanut butter ball into the cocoa mixture and then roll in the coconut and place on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. Refrigerate until firm and then remove from sheet and place in a sealed storage container in refrigerator.
Hint: if there is any leftover cocoa mixture, drop coconut and nuts into it, mix well, and drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper and refrigerate.
