Raw Vegan ‘Bounty’

Serving Size: 20

Prep Time: 20

Cooking Time: 1-2 hours in the freezer

Ingredients

Inside:

  • 1 cup coconut or almond milk
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 4 tablespoons organic or raw honey, melted (organic maple syrup would also work)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 cups organic shredded coconut

Outside:

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2-4 tablespoons cup rice malt syrup or honey (depending on how sweet or bitter you like your chocolate)
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1-2 tablespoons Nut Butter

Method

  1. Combine coconut oil and coconut milk in a medium sized bowl (make sure that they are not separated). Next, add the honey, vanilla essence and sea salt and mix well. Then, add the shredded coconut and mix until well combined.
  2. Roll mixture into balls (if too warm to handle, put in the freezer for 30 minutes). Freeze the bounty balls for approximately 30 minutes.
  3. To make the chocolate coating, melt the coconut oil on low heat. Once melted, add the rice malt syrup or honey, whisking until well combined. Then add the cacao powder, stirring well until well mixed through.
  4. Take the coconut balls out of the freezer, dip each one into the chocolate sauce and place on a wire rack on top of lined baking tray (make sure the tray fits in your freezer). Freeze until the chocolate has hardened (approximately 30 – 60 minutes).
