Bolitas de amor recipe
This is an easy sweet treat affectionately called a “ball of love” and something i like to share with my friends and on retreats. I often get a few giggles when i pass through the village handing out “balls of love” but they are a great way to use up the shredded coconut from making coconut milk and satisfies my sweet cravings. I hope you enjoy them too!
2 tbsp Coconut Oil
½ cup of peanut butter
50g pure cacao, grated
1 cup shredded coconut
½ cup of quick oats
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
Add the coconut oil, peanut butter and cacao to a medium sized saucepan over a low heat until it has akk combined and melted. Turn off heat.
Add half of the grated coconut, oats, chia seeds and cinnamon and stir well until all ingredients are combined and coated with the chocolate mixture
When cool, pinch off some of the dough and roll into balls, coat with the remaining grated coconut and put place in the fridge to cool and set
Serve as a healthy high energy snack, serve with slices of mango and delicious with a hot cup of coffee on a raining choco afternoon.
