The cake pop craze kinda hit after I had gotten on the healthy train… I am not bummed about much, but I liked the idea of dessert on a stick… So I experimented, and this is what I can up with.
Since then, I have found that we love the cute pops, but these can be hearts for valentines or super simple circles when you are short on time. They are just yummy!
1 cup Cashews (soaked for an hour)
1 cup Cacao
1 cup Brazil Nuts
1 cup Maple Syrup
Unsweetened coconut flakes for topping
Process all ingredients in food processor to form a dough.
Place bowl in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Roll dough into balls for cake pops or roll out dough and use a cookie cutter to make shapes or just make organic cookie shapes with your hands — let the kids help!
Roll them in coconut flakes.
You can freeze these and enjoy them cold; dehydrate them for 12 hours; or bake at 250° for 10 minutes.
Store in airtight container.
