No Bake Coconut Delight


Well I though I would bring I more treat to share with you today that I came across. It is a very easy to make treat and require no baking. I hope you like it. Please share if you enjoy. I found this wonderful recipe at Whole New Mom Site.  Happy Reading.

Makes approximately 25 treats

Ingredients

  • 3 cups unsweetened, shredded coconut
  • 3/8 cup (6 Tablespoons) coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup sweetener
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla (I recommend alcohol free vanilla since you will not be baking these)
  • 3/8 teaspoon sea salt

Optional Toppings:

  • Hershey’s Sugar Free Semi-Sweet Baking Chips melted, for drizzle
  • shredded coconut

Methods:

  1. Put all ingredients in a food processor or blender.
  2. Combine until the mixture is blended and sticks together.  (Note: if you are using a high-powered blender like a Vitamix, do not turn your machine on high.  You will likely end up with Coconut Butter.  While it will be delicious, it won’t be these no bake cookies :-)!)
  3. Remove the mixture from the blender / food processor and form into desired shape.  I really like the cute little shapes I was able to make with this little cookie scoop.  If you have a little trouble with the “balls” falling apart but just gently press them back into the desired shape.
  4. Decorate with shredded coconut, cocoa or carob powder,  or melted chocolate (I love mine with melted chocolate chip, piped from a plastic baggie with a tiny hole cut in the corner) as desired.  Or leave them plain.  They are great just as is (but I do think a little coconut sprinkled on top adds a nice touch.
  5.  Leave to firm up on a plate.  They will firm up at room temperature.
  6. You really don’t need to store these in the fridge but I think they taste a tad bit better cold.
  7. Enjoy
