They taste even better than they look, let me tell you that.
So today is my third day living a 'normal' life post competition, and instead of hitting my favourite frozen yogurt shop, I took my brains to my KitchenAid stand mixer.
What we have here are Coconut Bliss Bites, or my version of the gluten-free paleo bars you can get from BreadCo. here in Kelowna, except they're obviously better because I made them! Just a few simple ingredients and some time in the freezer is all that's needed.
*1/3 cup almond butter
*2 tbsp coconut oil
*2 tbsp honey
*1/3 cup organic shredded coconut, add more if you'd like more texture
*1/3 cup cashews, chopped up finely
*2 tbsp hemp hearts
*2 tbsp dried cranberries
Throw everything in your stand mixer and mix well. Drop onto a plate in ball shapes, or you could press them into a bread pan to eventually cut into squares. Freeze for 20 minutes and enjoy! Makes about 20 balls.
Now obviously you're not going to eat the entire batch at once (I'm not judging), so once you've had your share, put back in the fridge until you're ready to eat again :)
