Coffee Almond Joys

These ooey-gooey Coffee Almond Joys are a healthy, elevated twist on a childhood favorite. Made of simple, real ingredients, this mouth-watering sweet treat is easy to make and full of flavor. A perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth without compromising your health goals! 

Ingredients

  • Packed 3/4 cup medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
  • Scant 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup Daily Crunch Cinnamon Java Almonds
  • Optional: sea salt flakes

Instructions

  1. Combine dates, coconut, and extract in a food processor. Pulse until it forms a sticky crumble (leave some small coconut chunks if you please!).

  2.  

    Line a baking sheet with nonstick parchment and make sure there's space for it in your freezer.
  3. Scoop approximately 3 tbsp mixture -- you can use your hands and roll it into a candy bar shape, or you can just use a retractable ice cream scoop, which is what I do, and leave it in that 'macaroon' shape. Repeat with all of the mixture. I also find it helpful to dampen the scoop or my fingers to prevent sticking.
  4. Press 2 almonds into each; it's ok if the edges break a little. Just press it back. Freeze for 15 minutes.
  5. In a microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate and oil. Melt on 20 second increments, stirring in between, until mostly melted. Then keep stirring until fully melted.
  6. Grab baking sheet and dip each into chocolate. I prefer to place it in the chocolate and coat the top with a spoon, then use a fork to putt it out, shaking off excess liquid. Add back to sheet and repeat. Sprinkle on sea salt flakes, if using, then freeze Almond Joys another 20 minutes before enjoying.
  7. Leftovers will keep in the freezer for 2 months or in the fridge for 1 week!
