Sharon's Healthy Recipes

A yummy, nutty quick treat to satisfy that little “sweet tooth” in a healthy way.

Ingredients

1/2 cup crispy walnuts
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
2 tbs. carob or cocoa powder
2 tbs. butter, softened
1/4 cup almond or peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

No of Servings: 6     Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Instructions

Place all ingredients in food processor bowl with metal blade. Pulse until mixture is soft and combined. (Can also be mixed by hand if walnuts are chopped first.) Form into balls with buttered hands and roll in coconut if desired. Mixture may need to be chilled first. Mixture can also be placed in buttered pan and cut into squares.

Notes

I use organic, unsweetened coconut without sulfur dioxide. I recommned pure vanilla extract, not artificial flavoring. I also recommend organic butter and raw honey. To make crispy walnuts, soak the walnuts in salt water for approximately 8 hours and then dry them in a warm oven or a food dryer until crispy. See Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon for more information on why this is necessary.
