This yummy recipe is inspired by the mint coconut bites. So if you loved them or even if you didn’t then I would recommend giving these a try. Pretty low fat and pretty tasty. The great thing about making things like this at home is that you know exactly what’s gone into the recipe. Minimal ingredients, minimal calories, and tonnes of flavor. The fruit in this recipe gives a lovely tang while the chocolate adds a level of sweetness alongside the coconut.
Raspberry Coconut Bites
- 100 g Frozen Raspberries
- 100 g Desiccated Coconut
- 1 Tbsp Golden Syrup or other of your choice
- 1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
- 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
- 1 Tsp Vanilla extract
- 2 Tsp Bioglan Supergreens Berry Burst Powder Optional
- 100 g Dark Chocolate
- 1 Tbsp Coconut oil
- 1 Tsp Sweet Freedom Chocolate Pot optional
Toppings (optional) –
- Desiccated Coconut
- Frozen Raspberries
- Cocoa Nibs
Start by placing your coconut in a bowl and mixing with the Bioglan powder if using. If not using Bioglan powder you could substitute with some blended beetroot or red food colouring.
Blend your frozen Raspberries and add them to the coconut mix.
Now add the rest of your filling ingredients to the mix. This includes Syrup, Chia Seeds, Coconut Oil and Vanilla Extract.
Give it a good stir. The mixture should become quite stodgy and easy to manipulate into shapes.
From here it’s up to you which shapes you mould them into. The easiest is rolling the mixture in your hands to make balls. For the recipe, I put some of the mixture into a pyramid ice cube tray which also worked pretty well.
Once you’ve moulded all your mixture into the desired shapes freeze them for 1 hour.
Next, add all your chocolate ingredients into a bowl and microwave for 30-second intervals to melt.
Coat your bites with the chocolate. For this recipe I chose to coat some all over with chocolate and then others I put a sprinkle over and left them bare so you could see the colours. You can dip place them in the chocolate and roll them to coat or drizzle it on top, or, leave some bare.
NOTE – If you’re using toppings don’t forget to add them on once you’ve added your chocolate.
Set in the fridge. These will keep in the fridge for one week or in the freezer for a month.
