If you aren’t familiar with coconut powder, it is made from dehydrated coconut milk to create a powder similar to dried milk powder.
1/2 C coconut powder (you could also use 1 1/2 cups finely shredded unsweetened coconut if you want some texture)
1/3 C raw cacao powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/3 C maple syrup
Mix ingredients together in a food processor, or combine by hand, to form a paste-like dough. Form into balls. That’s all there is to it! Enjoy!
