Lime Coconut Bars

  • ¾ Cup Organic Coconut Oil
  • 2 Cups Unsweetened Coconut Shreds
  • 3 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 20 Drops DoTerra Essential Oils
  • 1 Tsp. Sea Salt

Add all ingredients to food processer, and thoroughly mix as needed. Once the mix is well blended, flatten on to a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Freeze the bars for 1-2 hours until firm. Once hard, cut into bars and enjoy.

Date Balls

  • 2 Cups Pitted Dates
  • 1 Cup unsweetened Coconut Flakes
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Tbsp water

Put dates, water, cocoa powder and ½ cup of coconut flakes in a food processor fitted with the steel blade (reserve the remaining ½ cup of coconut flakes for coating the truffles). Process for 1 minute. Scrape down the sides of the food processor. Process for 4 more minutes, or until the mixture forms into a ball. If it hasn't formed into ball or turned into a smooth paste, add more water 1 tbsp at a time and process some more until it does. Put the remaining ½ cup of coconut flakes on a large plate.

Line another large plate with parchment paper. Take 1 tbsp of date mixture from the food processor and roll with your hands into a ball. Put the ball on a plate with coconut flakes, and roll, pressing slightly, so it's coated with coconut flakes all over. Put the truffle on parchment paper. Repeat with remaining date mixture.
