Can you imagine Christmas without the taste of coconut? Neither do I … and these coconut bites are actually the only sweet thing I made for Christmas … as I don’t really feel like eating anything else .) They are full of coconut flavor (as they are RAW) with a hint of fresh pear. No baking, no gluten, no sugar, no stress! Enjoy!
- 2 cups dried shredded coconut (organic quality, unsweetened)
- 5 tbsp. RAW agave
- 1 fresh ripe pear (peeled)
- optional: Vanilla extract
- Add 1 cup of shredded coconut in a high-speed blender. Blend until the coconut releases the "fat" ... with this there is no need to use coconut oil. Add 1 peeled pear + RAW agave (to your taste, approx. 5 tbsp.) blend until you get moisty dough. Remove the dough from blender. In a bowl mix the dough with some more shredded coconut - just it to bee thick enough to make the balls. Serve chilled.
