I adapted my Bounty recipe to make the Peanut Coconut version, using my favourite Peanut & Coconut Spread. Topped with Chocolate flavoured coconut cream stevia icing and a chocolate drizzle for effect.
These little morsels are so delicious and combine some of my favourite flavours.
I keep them nice and small using mini silicon moulds. All though they are full of natural ingredients, raw treats can still be high in calories and fat, so keep them small if you are watching your weight. The mini size are perfect for this, and are very filling.
Just blend and freeze as always, no cooking required. I use a nut spread that is made of just nuts, nothing else. If you don't have this, make your own or try and find a spread that is almost 100% nuts with out any nasty fillers and oils.
I hope you give them a try
