Coconut Vanilla Meltaway Cookies

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by REBBL but all opinions are my own.  Thanks for supporting the brands that I love.

I used REBBL Vanilla Spice Protein Coconut Milk  for this recipe. I love that the protein is sourced from peas, pumpkin and sunflower seeds.  Most protein drinks contain processed ingredients.  Not only are REBBL drinks delicious, but they contain none of the bad stuff.  That’s right, REBBL drinks are organic, fair trade, made from real ingredients and full of super herbs like ashwagandha, reishi and maca root.

These truffles are super easy to make.  They are vegan, gluten free and paleo.  If you don’t want to make your own cake batter coconut butter, you can get a store bought version as well.  The store bought version is double the price of my homemade cake batter coconut butter.  If you like flavored coconut butter, you may also like this recipe.  I used chocolate chips to make the chocolate coating, but you can also use my 3 ingredient chocolate recipe.  If you choose to use the 3 ingredient chocolate, then you can omit the almond milk. Here is a short video on how to make the 3 ingredient chocolate

Cake Batter Coconut Butter

Cake batter coconut butter you ask?  Yes there is such a thing.  There is actually a brand that sells this very flavor at health food stores.  While their version is delicious, it goes for $12 a jar!  That seems a little pricey to me.  So I thought I would make my own version of cake batter coconut butter.  You can use this delicious coconut butter in place of nut butters, spread it on toast, mix some in overnight oats, or just eat it with a spoon.  I had a couple a lot of spoonfuls while I was making it.  I think I may also have a few plans for this cake batter coconut butter in future dessert recipes.

This homemade coconut butter will harden once it is stored in the fridge.  All you need to do is stick the jar in a bowl of warm water and it softens right up.  If you can’t find macadamia nuts near you, I think cashews would work as well.  However, I think the buttery texture and flavor of the macadamia nuts adds to the cake batter flavor.

Let me be the first to say that these should be saved for a time when you want to indulge.  However, they are so rich in taste, that you can’t eat more than a couple bites.  Just store them in your fridge or freezer for when you want to treat yourself with a dessert. 🙂

Instructions

  1. In a saucepan , on medium heat, combine all ingredients except the Nutella and stir well.
  2. Remove from heat.

  5. Cover the Nutella with more coconut mixture.
  6. Repeat these steps until all are done.
  7. Place the muffin pans in the fridge to allow the cups to firm up.
  8. I let mine sit about 30-45 minutes.

Notes

I got 9 cups out of my batch. You can use mini muffin pans as well. Enjoy!
