Fatty Yummies

on October 4, 2012

My grandkids help me make various versions of this recipe, often with lots of nuts and seeds, and they call them “Nutty Yummies”; so, keeping with the theme, these are in the Yummies category with an emphasis on lots of fat and little protein or carbs.  Good for a snack, dessert, or meal replacement.

In more or less equal combinations, but I often use up this and that jars of nut butter so I may go high or low; still they come out fine.

2 T Coconut oil

2 T tahini or sunbutter

4 T Nut butter (avoid peanut butter)

4 T  butter (Kerrygold is my favorite)
15 g Lindt 99% dark chocolate
1 oz raw grated coconut
1/4 c raw/roasted almonds
Option: 10 drops liquid stevia , &/or a teaspoon of vanilla or almond extract
Toss it all in the food processor, except coconut and chocolate, and spin to smooth-ish, then add the coconut and chocolate and process just a little to keep some chunkiness to both. Pour in a small container, I use a 5.5 x 7.5 Pyrex casserole–you want the mixture about an inch deep. Cover & refrigerate; after about 30-40″ score the mixture into 24 pieces and return to refrigerator. 
Opt: Take each  square and roll into a ball, then roll in coconut, cocoa, nuts
The nutrition is for this batch, but I play around with the recipe so much that nutrition counts have to be reworked each time.
