These recipes are all currently published on my blog, but I wanted to make sure they were in one easy spot for those of you who saw our segment on Good Day Sacramento!
Here’s the video if you didn’t get to see it!
Recipe: Monkey Poop
3 ripe bananas
1 cup peanut butter or almond butter
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (optional)
2 TBSP pure maple syrup
1 (10 oz) bag dairy-free, soy-free chocolate chips
Freeze for about 30-40 minutes, until hard enough to handle. While those are freezing, melt chocolate in a double boiler. Let cool for 10-15 minutes. Dip each banana/peanut butter ball in the chocolate and return to parchment paper. Place back in freezer to harden. Enjoy!
Note: Store in freezer for best results
Recipe: Chocolate Caramel Almond Bars
Recipe: Caramelized Coconut Chips
a.k.a. Salty Cinnamon Goodness
2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (not the shredded ones, but the shaved ones)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon (I used about double this since I love cinnamon)
Mix the salt and cinnamon in a small bowl. Heat a nonstick skillet and add coconut flakes. Shake pan to make a single layer. Stir frequently and cook until they get a “toasty” look. Be careful not to let them burn!
Sprinkle the salt/cinnamon mixture over coconut, stir, and then remove from pan and pour onto a parchment paper-covered baking sheet. Allow to cool so they get crunchy. That’s it!
