Frugal Foodie: “Holly’s Raw Choco-Coconut Balls/Bars” from Mothering Magazine


An easy, no-bake, delicious and nutritious dessert or snack.

I got this recipe from Mothering Magazine (not sure which month or year).  It’s been a family favorite for at least a couple of years. 

Coconut Oil if from’s Subscribe and Save; raw honey is from Sport Hill Farm; and the cocoa, nut butter and bulk coconut are from my food co-op.

The ingredients:

2 c. unsweetened coconut flakes

1 c. cocoa powder

1 c. raw honey

1/2 c. nut butter of your choice

1/3 cup raw coconut oil

All 5 ingredients in the food processor.

Pulse all ingredients in food processor to a brownie-like consistency.  Shape into small balls and roll in additional shredded coconut or press into a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish, to cut into bars later.  Or you can do a combo of both and use smaller dishes.  See the photo at the top.

Keep in refridgerator – these melt quickly.

  1. Hi Aimee, I think you may have brought these to one of our meetings before. Delicious! Have you ever tried freezing the batter? Thanks, Karen

    1. Hi Karen! Yes, you’re right, I have brought these to our co-op meetings. I haven’t tried freezing it, but I bet it would work. You would probably want to shape it first, either balls or bars, then freeze. Happy no-baking! ~Aimee~,TFF
