This recipe is amazing. I’ve tried coconut flour pancakes and cookies and they always come out so dry! I like them warm but also they are great coming out of the fridge.
Makes 7 donut holes

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons Stevia
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
Few drops almond extract (optional)
Dash salt
Dash pumpkin pie spice
1 egg
3 tablespoons coconut flour
Cinnamon/Splenda or cocoa for rolling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter, Stevia, extracts, salt and spice. Add egg and mix well. Add coconut flour until fully combined. Let sit for a few minutes so the flour can absorb the liquids.

Roll into balls about 1 inch in diameter and place in greased glass dish.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Roll in preferred coating!

I did a cinnamon and Splenda mix, cocoa powder, and a simple glaze made from heavy cream and Splenda.

Keto Coconut Chocolate Balls

I have been searching around for recipes with coconut cream for weeks and finally decided to try something new. If you have a chocolate craving these will satisfy you and loaded with healthy saturated fat from all the coconut. They remind me of a truffle!

Ingredients

1/4 cup coconut oil
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoon stevia
1/4 cup coconut cream (coconut butter)
1/2 cup shredded coconut (I used fine shred)
Finely chopped salted nuts, I like almonds

Melt coconut oil and mix with cocoa powder. Add coconut cream and stir well, making sure its combined fully. Mix in shredded coconut. Put in freezer until hard enough to roll into balls, it took about 10-15 minutes for me. Shape into balls and roll in chopped salted nuts.
