“coconut treats”

I’ve seen various recipes for “fat bombs” around the Internet and I’ve taken ideas from them and experimented. These are the ones my son and I love best! He calls them “coconut treats.” 🙂 They are a great, tasty way together your daily dose of virgin coconut oil, which has many, many health benefits.

  • 1/2 cup coconut butter
  • 1/4 cup virgin coconut oil
  • 1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt
  • Enjoy Life mini chips or chopped very dark chocolate (optional)

Mix all ingredients except shredded coconut. Once combined well, then stir in the coconut. Add chocolate chips/pieces if you want (I roll half the batch plain then add chips to other half). Use spoon and fingers to gently form into balls and put on cookie sheet in freezer for 30 minutes to set. Remove and store in a sealed container in the fridge (they start melting if they get warm at all). So delicious!! 🙂

  1. This sounds delicious, Rach! I’m always looking for ways to enjoy more coconut oil and this sounds like a great follow-up to a yummy vegetable pasta I make with coconut oil, a little garlic salt, and a small amount of grassfed dairy butter (for the K2, which I have been eating specifically for my weak teeth). Delicious meal, incoming! Thanks for the recipe!
