Cacao Coconut Walnut Balls

I love recipes that aren’t so rigid that we have to fear failing.

This recipe started as an accident.
I wondered if I could grind walnuts to use to coat my chicken in a new fried chicken recipe.
No, you can’t. Ground walnuts are too moist (I instead used 1:1:1 mixture of almond flour, coconut flour, finely shredded coconut for my chicken. Dip in egg first, then this mixture.)

I decided to make dessert with the ground walnuts!

The mixture wasn’t holding together, so I added 1 Tbs melted Unrefined Coconut Oil

  • Roll into balls. Freeze.
  • Store in freezer and pop-at-will for a healthy, guilt-free dessert or snack.

Play around with the ratios, try different nuts, go easy on the dried fruit.
