Coconut Energy Cubes

Coconut makes another guest appearance on the blog! I’m pretty sure I can’t go more than a week without developing some sort of coconut-based recipe. Clearly, I need help.

These guys are great for a post-workout snack or an early morning pre-surf boost!

Coconut Energy Cubes

1 c. coconut butter (homemade is easy! Try it here.)
1 3.5 oz. bar dark chocolate (70 percent or higher)
1/4 c. goji berries
1/4 c. sunflower seeds
1/4 c. pistachios
sea salt to taste

optional:
1 Tbsp. instant coffee crystals or ground espresso
other nuts/dried fruit
scoop of protein powder

  1. In a sauce pan, heat coconut butter on low, constantly stirring to melt.
  2. Once the butter is warm, remove from heat and add in chocolate and stir to melt. Mixture will be a bit more smooth with the addition of the chocolate.
  3. Add any nuts, dried fruit, coffee, etc.
  4. Spoon into a clean ice-cube tray.
  5. Refrigerate until set.

    Can these be left out at room temperature or do they need to be refrigerated? If I wanted to load these with a lot more seeds and nuts but chopped up real small, would it hold together?

      I’d like to say that could work but the coconut gets really melty even at room temp so I would advise keeping them refrigerated.
