This recipe is courtesy of our friend Susan, thank you for sharing the recipe with us! I will issue a word of caution, they are heavenly! So be careful to only pack one or two so you don't over eat and eat the whole batch in one sitting. Think moderation here folks!
That said enjoy, they are tasty and a wonderful source of Pre-WOD energy.
Susan's Divine Energy Balls
3 ounces Macadamia nuts, ground ( I used dry roasted with sea salt simply because it's what I had),
for those of you who don't want to weigh it, that's about a scant 1/3 cup
1/3-1/2 cup Coconut Butter, Manna, or creamed coconut, slightly melted (I used 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup coconut oil, softened
a splash of real vanilla
Coconut shreds for rolling in
I used my food processor and ground the nuts first, then added the remaining ingredients and let it mix. Poured it into a bowl and chilled in the fridge for about 15 minutes, just until firm, stirring every few minutes because the edges will get hard quicker.

Place shredded coconut in a bowl, plate or other surface to roll your balls in. Then using a tablespoon measure, scoop out 1 TBSP of the mixture drop in your coconut shreds and roll into balls. Place on a clean plate or container, chill and enjoy!

*Using 1/2 cup coconut butter made me exactly 10, Tablespoon size balls.*
|Ready to enjoy!|
