•1 (5 oz) bag shredded coconut- unsweetened
•2/3 cup melted coconut oil + 1 TBSP
•1/2 cup almond butter (try Barney Butter's Cocoa + Coconut) (substitute Sunbutter for nut free)
•1 tsp organic vanilla
•1 cup dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life)
In medium bowl, mix the coconut flakes, 2/3 cup melted coconut oil, vanilla, and almond butter until well mixed.
Using your hands, form into 1 inch balls and put on a plate. Place in the freezer until hardened.
Once the coconuggets have hardened, melt the chocolate in a double boiler with the additional 1 TBSP coconut oil until smooth.
Dip the clusters into the chocolate and put back on a plate or in a small baking dish and place back in to the refrigerator. Enjoy cold!
Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.

All recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free with a lot of soy-free, grain-free, sugar-free options.
