  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Directions:

  1. In a food processor, process the dates, walnuts, coconut oil, sea salt and vanilla extract until smooth. A ball will begin to form- break it apart as you go through each step.
  2. Add 1 cup of the pecans. Process until it’s evenly distributed in the mixture and in small pieces.
  3. Add the remaining half cup of pecans, pulse a few times, until just evenly distributed, leaving the pecans in larger pieces.
  4. Using a 1-in scooper, your hands, or a spoon, form 1 to 2 in. size balls.  Place on a parchment paper or other non-stick surface.
  5. Place your shredded coconut in a small bowl and roll each bite around in the coconut.Coconut Pecan Bites by Coconut Contentment- Paleo, Sugar-free, Grain-free, Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Vegan. Perfect for adults and kids alike for an afternoon snack or dessert.

      You can leave them in or out of the fridge- either way make sure they are in an airtight container :)

      Out of the fridge 1-2 weeks
      In the fridge 2-4 weeks (they will harden some in the fridge due to the coconut oil- but should soften once removed and brought to room temp)

      Enjoy! :)
