My easy homemade Choc Bounty Balls aka. Coconut Truffles make the perfect healthy treat – with no guilt involved whatsoever! It only takes a couple of minutes to whip up this vegan, paleo & sugar-free treat! The little balls of coconutty goodness taste just like the famous Bounty Bar.
We sweeten these little coconut bliss balls with maple syrup, which makes them not only vegan but also free from refined sugar! These little coconut chocolates are also paleo and gluten-free.
We need coconut cream, unsweetened shredded coconut, maple syrup, vanilla extract and then, a couple of secret flavors. Those will ruin store-bought chocolates forever. Because these are so much better!
1 cup coconut cream
3 cups shredded coconut + more for rolling
1 cup almond flour
½ cup maple syrup
2 Tbsp vanilla extract
Pinch of Himalayan Sea Salt
2 Tbsp Coconut oil melted
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 cup cocoa powder
⅓ cup maple syrup
Shredded coconut (about ½ cup)
1. Combine all the ingredients (minus the coating ingredients), and process in a blender, until well combined. It should hold together fairly well when pinching together. Add more coconut cream if needed.
2.Using a heaping tsp of batter at a time, roll the coconut mixture into neat little balls and refrigerate (batter makes roughly 30 balls – but make them to whatever size you wish).
1. In a microwave-safe bowl or stovetop, melt your coconut oil. Once melted, stir in your cocoa powder and pure maple syrup and whisk until combined. let sit before dipping the coconut balls in them.
2. Remove the Balls from the fridge and cover the balls with the chocolate. Roll the chocolate balls (when still wet) in the shredded coconut. Store the Bounty Balls in a sealable container in the fridge and ENJOY!
Here’s the thing: to turn the healthy Coconut Balls into Raffaellos, next time round try adding a couple of drops of rum flavour to it.
Instead of bliss balls, you can create bar-shaped bounty treats, too!
For a deeper flavor, add some almond or rum extract. To create a crunchy surprise, fill your coconut-coated bliss balls with a hazelnut.
