Course Dessert, Snack


  • 1 1/2 cups almond meal (ground almonds)
  • 2 1/2 cups desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup fresh cherries, pitted
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Chocolate Coating

  • 4 oz chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil


  • Place the almond meal, coconut, honey, coconut oil, vanilla and cherries into the bowl of a food processor. Process until finely chopped and thoroughly combined.
    Be careful not to over process, its nice to have different sized 'bits' and some chunks in your yum balls.
    Take heaped teaspoons of the mixture and using wet or oiled hands shape into rounds.
    Place in the fridge for 20 minutes to ‘set’ while you melt the chocolate coating.

Chocolate Coating

  • Place chocolate chips and coconut oil in small dish and microwave with 30 second bursts stirring between each one until melted and smooth.
    Or use double boiler method - (pot of boiling water with a bowl resting on top) melt the chocolate chips and the coconut oil together.
    Skewer each ball or use 2 forks to hold each bar and dip into the melted chocolate, then place on a rack to dry. Dip twice for extra coating if you have any left over.
    Put the balls into the freezer or fridge to firm up and once chocolate is set and crisp, enjoy your cherry yum balls..
