Coconut Bliss Bites

You know what’s really dumb? Listening to a podcast on your phone…while in the shower.

The day before you’re leaving for a long weekend.

When you haven’t packed a thing.

And scheduled a well-child appointment the morning you’re leaving (oh, there will be shots!)

…which is the same day as the first day of school.

You guys, I’m in a no-good, terrible mood. We’re leaving on vacation (family adventure) and if I HAD a phone to look, I know what I’d see weather-wise on the forecast: FALL. What was I hoping for? Indian summer. September has been STUNNING in the many years preceding this year. 2020, man.

I’m trying to be positive and I’m really hoping the phone/computer repair place can work their magic. What a relief that would be…

Until then, I’m done with work until Monday and I’m 100% focused on 1. not being a total witch to everyone I encounter and 2. getting my life organized. I have no excuse to be this disheveled coming out of a holiday weekend…but, I am. And so what do I want to do? Take a nap. This weather, this grey, these 50 degree temps. The only thing they’re good for is a long, peaceful NAP.

I’m so pleasant, I know.

My fridge is also full of food that needs to be consumed or put in the freezer. It’s not full of what I want: comforting, sweet, indulgent-yet-healthy-ish Coconut Bliss Bites for terrible, no-good days. I was editing these pictures last night, wishing they weren’t gone. They keep so well in the fridge and if I’d been a bit better at planning, I’d have made some to take on our trip. The girls love them and Mark hates coconut – it would’ve been perfect! 😉

In all seriousness, these bliss bites are beyond simple and beyond delicious. Assuming you love coconut because they’re nearly all coconut. So, so good! Enjoy!

Coconut Bliss Bites

Coconut Bliss Bites

Yield: 17 bites
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 2 minutes
Additional Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 42 minutes

4 ingredient coconut bliss in (large) bite-sized balls! Fun, delicious, and healthy-ish 😉

Ingredients

  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • 2 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • 5 oz dark chocolate, chopped or broken into pieces
  • 2 tsp coconut oil

Instructions

  1. In a mini food prep or food processor, process together the coconut, coconut milk, and sugar until sticky and forming a mass.
  2. Use a 2 tablespoon scoop to create 17 balls, rolling between your hands using some gentle pressure to ensure balls are formed without crumbling/cracking. Place balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet and transfer to the freezer for 30 minutes.
  3. Before removing balls from the freezer, combine the chocolate and coconut oil in a small bowl. Microwave for 45 seconds; stir well. Microwave in 10 second increments, stirring with each addition of time, until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
  4. Use a fork to roll each ball into chocolate until coated; scoop up the ball using the fork and shake off all excess chocolate before placing on the parchment paper.
  5. Freeze balls an additional 20-30 minutes or until chocolate is hardened. Store in the fridge.
