There are a few things that make this recipe great.  They are vegan, gluten free and paleo approved.  The contain ZERO refined sugar, and there is no baking required!  Only 5 simple ingredients!

I have such a sweet tooth, so I am always thinking of new ways to enjoy sweets in a better way.  Since these contain a good amount of fat, and they are super rich, you don’t need much to satisfy.  I made mine in standard sized muffin pans and got 6, but you can do a bite size up if you like too!

We shot a short video for this recipe if you need a visual.  You can view it below.  To see more of my videos, you can follow my You Tube channel.

      1. Hi Melissa would you please tell me about coconut butter? I've made my own using coconut flake in my new blender. After making it I put it in the refrigerator. It turned very solid. I took it out 12 hours ago and it is still pretty solid. Is that's normal? If I melt it will the consistency be off for this recipe?
        1. Hi Shelly, Yes that happens when you put it in the fridge. I keep mine in the pantry and it doesn't get as hard. You can place the jar in a pot of warm water to soften it.
        1. I'm sorry I don't, but you can upload the recipe into My Fitness Pal for a complete breakdown. I hope you enjoyed them! :)
