They also supply your body with wholesome superfoods and if you’re a believer, then they are anti-inflammatory and are packed with those all-important good-fats.
Here’s what you need:
1 1/4 Cups Unsweetened coconut flakes
1 tsp Ground turmeric
1/4 tsp Sea salt
3 Tbsp Natural Smooth Almond Butter
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil at room temperature
2 Tbsp Honey
1 Tbsp Dairy-free chocolate chips + extra for drizzling
Here’s how to make:
1 In a bowl, mix together the turmeric, coconut flakes and sea salt.
2 In a microwave-safe bowl, combine 2 tbsp of the almond butter, along with the coconut oil and microwave until smooth and melted. Whisk together.
3 Add the oil mixture, along with the honey onto the coconut flakes and mix well, (it will be quite moist).

5 Scrape the sides of the bowl down so the mixture is all packed together at the bottom of the bowl and refrigerate for about 15 mins or until the coconut oil begins to firm.
6 Once firm, Using a cookie scoop place on a parchment paper lined tray. Refrigerate until firm.
7 Drizzle with additional melted chocolate.
