RECIPE: Vita Coco Coconut Oil Coco Bites

When I went along to the Nike Women’s 10km earlier in June as part of the VCCO team, I popped along to the stand and had a nibble on the Coco Bites they had prepared. I thought they were delicious and grabbed one of the recipe cards knowing I would have to attempt to recreate this myself!

And recreate I did!

Here’s the recipe (makes 14):

40g Vita Coco Coconut Oil 
100g Crunchy peanut butter 
(I used homemade almond butter)
100g Raisins 
50g Dates 
100g Toasted Oats 
(I used jumbo rolled porridge oats and toasted in a dry frying pan!)
50g Cashews 

Method – blitz all of the ingredients in a mixer until smooth and then shape into balls. For an added coconut boast try rolling in some desiccated coconut! Store in an airtight container for up to five days. #swearbyit 

Made with almond butter they taste a lot more caramel-y!

Let me know if you enjoy them as much as I have!
