Clean Eating Coconut Bites Recipe – Quick and Easy
I try to have these no-bake chocolate coconut cookies always in my fridge as a sweet and clean indulgence right after lunch or dinner, but you guess it… they don’t last too long.
Most of you know that I love minimalism let it be in art, architecture, fashion or cooking – less for me is more! In this context this simple coconut cookies or should I say truffles recipe is perfect for me: You need just 2 ingredients and a good kitchen machine.
Keep in mind that to maximize the power of your food processor you’ll need more desiccated coconuts than you actually need for the recipe. Ok, so let’s jump right into the recipe or scroll down below and watch my short video for inspiration.
- 400 grams (14.11 ounces) dessicated coconut, organic, unsweetened
- 70 grams (2.5 ounces) dark chocolate (60-70%)
- Puree desiccated coconuts in a kitchen machine or blender until you get coconut butter
- In my Themomix I start with level 10 for 2:30 minutes, then I check consistency.
- I scratch the coconut mix from the sides of my pot and blend for another 2:30 minutes at level 4-5. For best results some machines will need 10 minutes with "cool down" breaks in between, it really depends.
- You need just 120 grams (4.3 ounces) of coconut butter for this recipe, put the remaining coconut butter in a jar and store it in your pantry.
- Fill the fluid coconut butter with a little spoon in a silicone pan ( I use one half of a silicone cake pop mold) - fill each mold up only 3/4 in height.
- Put your pan for some minutes in your freezer
- In the meantime melt your chocolate over hot water.
- Take your silicone pan from the freezer and fill the melted chocolate until the edge of each mold.
- Put your chocolate coconut truffles in your fridge for a least 1 hour before serving.
- Store your coconut butter in a dark place in your pantry until you make the next round of chocolate coconut bites;)
