Almond Flour – The use of almond flour gives this recipe its texture and unique taste. It’s a must have ingredient in gluten-free cooking!
Coconut Flakes - We recommend you use organic unsweetened coconut flakes so that the recipe does not become too sweet.
Maple Syrup – As a Canadian company, we love to use local maple syrup in recipes but you can easily replace the maple syrup with organic agave syrup.
Coconut Oil – We recommend using organic virgin coconut oil and if you don’t like the taste of coconut you can use a deodorized coconut oil. The coconut oil will help to harden the balls once refrigerated so that they hold together well and create a nice smooth texture at the same time.
A healthy recipe, in 4 steps.
- Place all your ingredients into a high-speed blender.
