Ingredients

For the Chocolate:

  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 60 drops liquid stevia (or use 1 tbsp maple syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

For the Filling:

  • 1/4 cup almond butter (no sugar added)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • liquid stevia (to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Line mini muffin tins with paper liners and set aside. 
  • To make the chocolate, add melted coconut oil, vanilla, cocoa powder, salt, cinnamon and liquid stevia to a bowl. I used about 60 drops of liquid stevia but adjust to your tastes.
  • Then spoon chocolate into the mini muffin cups to just cover the bottom. Place in the freezer to set for 10-15 minutes. 
  • In the meantime, to make the filling, combine melted coconut oil, almond butter, coconut flour, shredded coconut, stevia, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. I used about 10 drops of liquid stevia for the filling, but again, adjust to your tastes.
  • Place filling in the refrigerator for 10 minutes or so to stiffen up. 
  • Then, form little balls with the filling and drop them into the muffin cups. 
  • Using the remaining chocolate, cover the filling completely. Freeze until set and ready to eat.
