In the spirit of full disclosure, I am not ashamed to admit that I am in a long-term relationship with chocolate; I think it’s the one. Problem is, much like Sam Smith, I know I’m not the only one. Chocolate has been seeing other people. Chocolate is not ready to take it to the next step; but if I’m honest, I ain’t mad. Why? Because, I totally have a tiny (huge) crush on all things coconut and I’ve decided it’s about time that we double date. If you too are ready for a little something more serious, then swipe right, I think this recipe might be your match.
2-3 Liquid Egg Whites
2 Cups Desiccated Coconut
1/3 Cup Goji Berries
2/3 Cup Natvia
1-2 Tsp Vanilla Essence (to your preference)
Dark Chocolate (melted)
Whisk egg whites, Natvia and vanilla
Add coconut and goji berries, mix well
Roll into balls and place on baking tray
Bake for approx. 20 min at 180 Degrees
Once these have cooled, dip in dark chocolate and roll in the crushed nuts. Place in fridge to set.
Keep refrigerated if any survive the rest of the date.
Note: Instead of rolling the mixture into balls, you can use Christmas shape cookie cutters and create edible ornaments. Leave uncoated and drizzle in chocolate. Enjoy!
Much love, Nat
