Peppermint & Cacao Balls

Makes 16 Balls

Ingredients

1 cup raw cashews
¼ cup shredded coconut
2 tbsp raw cacao powder
1 tbsp raw virgin coconut oil, softened
2 tsp rice malt syrup
1-2 drops pure peppermint oil

Method
  1. Pulse the cashews and shredded coconut in a food processor until you get fine crumbs. Stir through the cacao powder, coconut oil and rice malt syrup.
  2. Stir through the peppermint oil. You may want to do this one drop at a time, tasting as you go. I add 2 drops, but it is quite strong so you may prefer less.
  3. Roll the mixture into balls and store them in the fridge, as the coconut oil may start to melt at room temperature.
