  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seeds or chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup mini dairy free chocolate chips

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  1. To toast coconut place it on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and bake for 3-5 minutes at 350 degrees or until it begins to brown. Watch it closely to avoid burning.

I think they might need more nut butter. I used peanut butter and they would not hold together.
