Bowl of chocolate coated raspberry bites

Today’s Choc Raspberry Coconut Bites make a sweet and healthy treat. They’re great for when you’re on the run, although you may find it hard to stop at one. 

Serves: 14

Time: One and a half hours

Ingredients

  • 125g fresh raspberries, plus extra to decorate
  • 3 cups unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 1/4 cup coconut cream
  • 2/3 cup melted coconut oil, plus 1/2 cup extra
  • 3/4 cup raw cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Method

Line a large baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Mash the raspberries in a bowl using a fork. Add the coconut, coconut cream, coconut oil and mix until well combined. Using a two tablespoon capacity ice-cream scoop, firmly press the raspberry mixture into the scoop then turn out onto the prepared tray until you have 14 bites in total. Chill for one hour or until firm. Whisk together the cacao, maple syrup, vanilla and extra coconut oil until well combined and smooth. Immediately spoon over the tops of the coconut bites and top with extra raspberries. Serve or chill until later.

    Not so healthy - too much fat with the coconut cream and coconut oil and did you know there are more calories in maple syrup than sugar
