Ingredients

  • 140 g toasted coconut butter 1 cup
  • 35 g cocoa powder 1/4 cup
  • 1 - 2 Tablespoons maple syrup or rice bran syrup
  • 40 g buckinis* 1/4 cup
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 Tablespoon buckinis extra

Instructions

  • Line a mini muffin tin with papers and set aside.
  • Place the toasted coconut butter into a small saucepan.
  • Melt the butter over a low heat, stirring frequently, until fluid.
  • Stir in the cocoa powder, mixing thoroughly.
  • Add your chosen syrup.
  • Stir the syrup into the melted butter and cocoa. The mixture will start to thicken and seize. This is perfectly normal. Keep stirring until the mixture clumps into a ball.
  • Remove from the heat.
  • Add the buckinis and stir through. You may need to mash the buckinis into the mixture to make sure it is evenly incorporated.
  • Divide the mixture between the muffin cases and press in firmly.
  • Scatter the extra buckinis over the top of the bites and press lightly to help them stick.
  • Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to set.
  • These can be stored at room temperature, although I would keep them in the fridge if it is very hot.

Notes

* Buckinis are activated (soaked, sprouted and dehydrated) buckwheat kernels. They are crunchy, wholegrain and deliciously gluten free. You can find them at your local health food store.
