Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup coconut flour adjust according to your taste
  • 2/3 cup Healthy Caramel* see the link below for the recipe!
  • 10 roasted and peeled chestnuts
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tbsp ground freeze-dried strawberries optional
  • 3-4 tbsp nonpareils optional
Instructions
  1. In a food processor blend the chestnuts, Healthy Caramel and vanilla extract together until the mixture is very smooth.
  2. Scrape the chestnut mixture into a bowl and first add the cocoa powder. Stir well until the cocoa is fully incorporated.
  3. Add about 2/3 cup of coconut flour to the mixture and stir it well until it incorporates. If you like the stickier, gooey-er treats, this amount of coconut flour may just be enough for you. If you'd like them to be denser and chewy-er, keep adding the coconut flour until the batter reaches the desired consistency. I used about 1 cup of flour to make my cake balls really chewy, just how I like them.
  4. To make the shaping of the cake balls easier put the prepared mixture in the fridge and let it sit there for about an hour. This may be especially necessary if you decided to go with less coconut flour.
  5. Roll the batter into a log and cut it into 20 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball.
  6. Roll your cake balls in some ground freeze-dry strawberries or/and in colorful nonpareils. Enjoy!:)
