Free Healthy Recipe - Almond Delights

Dairy free, Gluten free, Low carbohydrate, Low GI, Low sugar, Wheat Free

Could these possibly be good for you? Made with mixed nuts, cocoa and nut spread they most certainly are but don't be confused into thinking they are low energy. Enjoy in moderation. They're excellent after-dinner treats to share with your guests, but eat them quickly otherwise they will dry out. Store them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 7 days.

Ingredients
½ cup almonds, finely ground
¼ cup roasted walnuts, finely chopped
¼ cup nut spread
2 tbsp maple syrup

Method

Add all ingredients together except for the desiccated coconut. Mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon or knead ingredients together. Place coconut onto a plate and remove a teaspoon of the almond mixture. Roll into a small ball and then roll in the coconut to coat. Place onto a plate and serve.

Note: Nut spread is available for health food stores. It is rich in good fat monounsaturated fat. Thoroughly stir the contents of the jar before using to incorporate the oil.

Makes 18 servings (serve = 1 ball)
