Coco for Coconut Bites

Coconut Almond Butter Bites

Despite it being a heat wave this summer, I had this urge to bake in July. To be completely honest, I’m not entirely sure why I never posted this recipe. I think I wanted to try it again to perfect it, but I honestly think it’s fine as is. I wanted something still summery (cue the coconut) and something that would keep me sated (hence the almond butter). I wanted a cookie and snack hybrid and somehow stumbled upon Coconut Almond Butter Bites as my end product. Bam!

Ingredients (makes 20 small “bites”).

  • 2/3 c coconut flour
  • 1/4 c unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 2 T coconut sugar
  • Couple “shakes” of cinnamon
  • 1/2 c almond butter
  • 1 T agave nectar or more to taste
  • 1-2 T unsweetened almond milk (or more as needed to moisten dough)

Directions.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with foil or a Silpat mat.
  2. Combine coconut flour through agave nectar. Mix well with a fork. Add almond milk as needed to make ingredients less dry and to moisten dough.
  3. Roll dough into small balls and place on baking sheet. The dough may crumble. If so, add a bit more almond milk and even some agave to help bind.
  4. Bake for about 8-10 min or until bites are firm and barely browning.
  5. Let cool on a wire rack.
  6. Store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to one week.
  7. Enjoy!
