Mocha Coconut Bites

These little balls of deliciousness are a great snack when you are craving some sweetness. They taste naughty but we promise they are only nice!


A perfect real food alternative to the mounds of Cadbury Favourites. And if coffee flavour isn't your thing, omit and instead experiment with Christmas spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger for a festive flavour.

  • 1 cup almond meal

  • 1 1/2 cup coconut flakes, finely chopped

  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, finely chopped

  • 1 tbsp raw cacoa powder

  • 1 tbsp ground coffee

  • 1 tbsp peanut butter

  • 1 frozen brown banana, blitz in food processor

  • juice of ½ lemon

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil


1. Finely chop one cup of coconut flakes and the sunflower seeds, blitz the frozen banana and juice the half lemon. Place all ingredients in a bowl and add the almond meal, coffee and cacoa powder. Mix to form a sticky but not wet mixture.

2. Place in fridge for 1 hr.

3. Remove from fridge and roll into walnut sized balls, coat hands in a little coconut oil to prevent the mixture from sticking.

4. Roll the balls first in a little coconut oil then in the roughly chopped additional coconut flakes
