Cheat Treat – MYO Bounty Bites

A healthy lifestyle and diet is all about balance. Unless you have military discipline, it can be almost impossible to have a golden week of healthy meals and let’s be honest, you shouldn’t have to. Life is all about enjoying it and I think that if you really want that last slice of cake then just go for it. Why deny yourself these delectable pleasures in life?
Now, in saying that I’m not encouraging you to go and eat the whole packet of biscuits or anything like that but just to be mindful that there is nothing wrong with treating yourself.
This post is a recipe for a super sweet treat that will satisfy your sugar cravings but also help you stay on track if you are keeping up a healthy diet.
As with all my recipes, they are quick and easy to make and taste really nice. There is little effort involved with this one so try them out and see what you think. They are a nice Saturday or Sunday afternoon activity that you can enjoy when they’re done with a nice brew.
They store well so you can make up a batch and have them on-hand in the snack drawer for when those cheeky cravings creep up on you during the week too.
It’s hard to go wrong with these little guys 🙂

Ingredients

4 Tbsp. Honey
110 grams Dark Chocolate
1 Tsp. Vanilla Essence
5 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
2 cups Desiccated Coconut

Method

In a mixing bowl, add the coconut, honey, vanilla and coconut oil.
Mix it all together evenly to make a big white, coconuty paste.
Using your hands, take a chunk of the paste and start to roll into a ball, squeezing out any air to make it nice and compact.
Continue to do this until all the mix has been used up.
Lay the coconut bites out on a tray, cover with cling film and leave to set in the fridge for about an hour or until they have solidified.
When you’re happy with them, start to melt your chocolate in a bowl until it runs nice and thin.
Pop each coconut ball into the chocolate and cover evenly. Transfer to the tray you used earlier.
Continue to do this until all the bites have been chocolified.
When they’re all done, pop the tray back in the fridge for another while until the chocolate has cooled and set.
Admire your creation and enjoy their yummy goodness.
