Can you eat your Raw Bounty Bites and lose weight too?
YES. YOU. CAN!
I’ve been experimenting with these little beauties for a while now (yes, it’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it) and I have to say, not only do these Raw Bounty Bites taste AH.MAZ.ING, they are totally guilt free too!
You see, Ditching the Diet means waving a sweet (and in this case, chocolate coated) “bye bye” to deprivation. It means never having to say “no” to something you really want to eat, for fear that it will ruin your “diet” (only to pig-out on it in secret two days later!)
When you Ditch the Diet, you set yourself free to enjoy a whole world of delicious food that you just simply never knew existed, because you were too busy jumping from one fad diet to the next (and let’s be honest… it never really get you to where you want to be, did it?)
It’s time to relax. The diet industry would like you to think that you can’t live without them. That if you’re not dancing to the beat of their over-inflated drum, like a Muppet dancing on hot coals, you will gain two thousand kilos before your head hits the pillow tonight.
But you won’t.
I promise you, you won’t.
Once you truly learn to listen to what your gorgeous body wants to eat, eeeeverything changes.
And just to show you how delicious your new life of dietary freedom can be… BEHOLD! Raw Bounty Bites!!
Here’s how it’s done…
Raw Bounty Bites
- 2 1/2 cups shredded coconut
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 2 tablespoons rice malt syrup (or organic honey)
- 2 tablespoons coconut nectar (or substitute with 2 more tbsp rice malt syrup or honey)
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Easy Chocolate Coating
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup rice malt syrup (or honey)
- 1/4 cup cacao powder
Make The Coconut Filling
- In a medium sized saucepan, gently combine coconut milk, coconut oil, honey/rice malt syrup/coconut nectar and sea salt.
- Once combined, stir through shredded coconut.
- You can either roll this mixture into balls or pour the mixture into a lined baking dish, press down firmly with your hands (this is a great job for the kids!) and place in the freezer for approximately 30 to 60 minutes to set (the coconut mixture, not the kids) 😉
- Once set, remove the coconut mixture from the freezer, cut into bite sized pieces and return to the freezer while you make your chocolate coating.
Make The Easy Chocolate Coating
If you want to get fancy, you can use a double boiler for this process, but I don’t (who wants to wash more dishes?)
- Use a small non-stick saucepan and melt all the chocolate coating ingredients over a low heat. Once combined, take the coconut bites from the freezer and carefully dip each one in the chocolate coating.
- Place on a wire rack to “drip” or, if you’re like me and you don’t want to waste one ounce of that delicious chocolate coating, just place them directly onto a lined tray and return to the freezer to set (approximately 20 minutes)
Keep remaining Bounty Bites in the freezer until ready to serve, but let’s face it… once the family sees these little babies, there’ll only be crumbs remaining.
