I love to have one of these as a treat after my evening meal with a cup of decaf coffee or as  an afternoon sweet, really hits the spot!

Makes 25 treats
– 141g Creamed Coconut
– 3 tbsp Tahini
– 2 tbsp raw honey
– 3 tbsp cocoa powder
– 1/4 cup protein powder (I use whey protein isolate)
– 2 tbsp peanut butter

1. Take the creamed coconut from the box  and unless it’s a really hot day warm in a cup of hot water (still in the plastic covering) or remove from wrapper and microwave for 20 seconds
2. Add all the ingredients together in a bowl and again warm the peanut butter if needed to make it easier to mixwp-1467078987846.jpg
3. Mix everything together until nice and smooth. If it is a warm day you may need to place the bowl in the fridge to cool before trying to form into shapeswp-1467079084564.jpg
4. Using 2 teaspoons form into ball or coin shapes and place on parchment paper. This mixture should make about 25 pieces.wp-1467078731829.jpg
5. Place in the freezer for a few hours to harden. Remove  from paper and keep in the freezer in a zip lock bag or Tupperware container and serve as needed!
