Did you know that the majority of the chocolate chips you buy in stores add soy to their chips?
Not only are Enjoy Life Foods chocolate chips soy free, but they are also gluten free, and dairy free! Which is hard to come by with chocolate chips! Knowing this, it's easy to see how they have quickly become a family favorite!
One of my guilty Paleo pleasures is to eat a spoonful of almond butter and then follow it up with a handful of chocolate chips! I can't be alone in this!! Knowing there had to be others who loved this combo too, I decided to do something about it.
The result… Almond, coconut, and chocolate goodness!
I went ahead and added some unsweetened coconut flakes to the almond butter. This worked as a flavor enhancement, plus it made the almond butter easier to mold! Simply finished off the combination with some melted chocolate and we had a miracle occur in the kitchen!
This will not be the last time we make these! I hope you enjoy!
Almond Coconut Chocolate Drops
- First melt your ghee in a mixing bowl in the microwave
- Next add your almond butter to that bowl and mix well and then place back in the microwave for about 60 seconds more to soften it to make it more moldable
- Mix in the salt and coconut and ensure an even distribution of all ingredients
- Once mixed, line a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper and roll the mixture into little balls, between 1/2 inch or 1 inch
- Place on the sheet and put in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes to let the almond butter set
- In a sauce pan over low heat or a double broiler, melt your chocolate chips
- Dip your almond butter balls in the chocolate, you can just dip half or the hole thing and then place back on your parchment paper
- Once all is dipped and back on your baking sheet, place back in the refrigerator for about an hour so everything solidifies. Remove and enjoy
