These melt-in-your-mouth little treats are smooth like a truffle and have a nutty-vanilla flavour that will keep you sneaking back to the fridge for more. They are packed full of protein (thanks Naked Co), nuts, coconut oil and chia seeds to keep you energised all afternoon (or morning if you decide to munch on them for breakfast like me). Enjoy x

2 cups nuts (I used almonds and macadamias)
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp rice malt syrup
3 tbsp coconut oil (mushy to solid)
Desiccated coconut to coat

In a food processor combine all the ingredients (except the desiccated coconut) and blend on high until a smooth runny paste is formed, much like the consistency of nut butter – this may take a couple of minutes depending on your food processor.
Pour your mixture into a bowl and refrigerate until hardened but still soft enough to shape – about 20-30 minutes. Take out mixture and spoon out heaped teaspoons, rolling into a ball and coating in desiccated coconut. Store in the fridge as the coconut oil can melt at room temp.
