Coconut Jam Energy Balls

Now you know how much I love coconuts? Well, maybe not but I LOVE everything about coconuts and have been raving about them for years. I’m so happy that everyone has finally realised how amazing, healthy and delicious they are and they are getting ever more popular.

Having been a fan of The Coconut Merchants amazing organic coconut products for a while now, I am really happy to be collaborating with them. I can’t get enough of their coconut oil, toasted chips and light organic dessicated coconut which is perfect for energy balls and breakfast toppings.

Have you heard of their coconut jam which is causing such a stir? Seriously, it’s amazing! My friend Sophie was the first of my friends to discover it – good spot honey!

So, these are my Coconut jam energy balls – really gooey, sticky, coconut. I decided to replace my usual nut butter for coconut jam and they are gorgeous. Think coconut cookie dough and you’ll be somewhere close.
