This is a hands on project that yields a sweet, yet healthy treat! These Raw Coco Nutty Bites have an amazing flavor!

This is a great treat to make for Valentine’s Day or any time of the year! Your family will thank you!

Made with coconut spread (concentrate), shredded coconut nut, nuts and a little honey, this treat puts commercial candy to shame. You CAN have a healthy candy. Just don’t eat too many! That will be hard – I guarantee it!

You may use any nut you have on hand already prepared, but using the roasted hazelnuts makes this really special.

  • Author:
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 1 hour in refrigerator
  • Total Time: 1 hour 15
  • Yield: approximately 20 pieces

Ingredients

Ingredients for Coconut Base

Ingredients for Nut Filling

  • 1/2 cup ground (to a meal consistency) hazelnuts or pecans (see below for instructions for soaking, dehydrating and roasting)
  • 1/4 cup coconut spread
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1/8 tsp stevia

Instructions

  1. Warm the jar of coconut spread in a pot of hot water until it is runny
  2. In the bowl mix all the ingredients for the coconut base until it is creamy
  3. On a piece of parchment paper take the base “dough” and roll it out until it is about 1/2 inch thick and smooth — you can use a rolling pin or your hands to do this
  4. Set aside
  5. In the same bowl you used for the base, add the filling ingredients — grind up the nuts first until they are of a meal consistency — you do not want big chunks — mix well
  6. Use your hands to place the filling ingredients on top of the base and smooth until it is even
  7. Try to keep the sides even and square
  8. With a pizza wheel or a knife cut bite sized squares and pull them slightly apart
  9. If you are serving these, now is the time to put them on a serving plate
  10. Melt the chocolate on low and with a spoon drizzle it over the squares
  11. Freeze or refrigerate before serving about one hour
  12. Keep in the freezer in a container for those moments when you need a quick fix!
