Peanut Butter-Coconut Bites (for the PB Officianado)

These were one of the snacks I made for the Seed Savers meeting this week and since they didn't last long (they were gobbled up really fast) I needed to make another batch for myself. 

I wondered if there was any value in sharing this - but then again why not? Even though this recipe was originally called Raw Coconut Bites, I felt like changing it into to something new. 

Each time I make a recipe (whether an old standby or a new experiment) I'm in a different space with different ideas that are just waiting to be tried and tested. From there the recipes seem to evolve . . . like this one did!

Peanut Butter-Coconut Bites
Yield:  30-1" bites

1-3/4 cups coconut flakes (shredded)
1/2 cup raw carob powder

1/8 tsp Vanilla powder
pinch of Himalayan salt
1/3 cup Agave
2 Tbsp peanut butter (raw organic and definitely not roasted)
1/4 cup Coconut Oil, melted

  • Start by melting the coconut oil (either heat in a dehydrator, or melt in a jar sitting in a bowl of warm water)
  • Mix ingredients to underline together in a bowl, set aside
  • Mix together the Agave and peanut butter in a measuring cup BEFORE adding to the bowl
  • When first 6 ingredients are combined, add melted coconut oil to the bowl and mix again 
  • Form into bite-sized balls with your hands
  • Put in fridge to set, store covered in the fridge, or store inside freezer bags in the freezer
    This recipe uses only seven ingredients and is super easy to make. Simply changing a few of the ingredients and combining them in a different way opened me to the discovery of a new taste and texture in each mouth-watering bite.
