These little pecan bites are a great option when that mid afternoon chocolate craving hits; and although with any nuts they needs to be portion controlled as part of a healthy diet, pecans are full of fibre, magnesium, selinium and potassium. My little boy in convinced they are mini chocolate biscuits, so perfect to put in the school lunch box.
1 cup pecan nuts
1 tbsp. coconut oil
1 tbsp. coconut butter (you can get this in health food stores such as Grape Tree Health, if you can't find this then add in another tbsp. coconut oil but keep nuts on fridge once made)
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tbsp. manuka honey
(If you are in a rush you simply just need 1 cup pecans and 100g 85% cocoa chocolate!).
1. In a small pan melt coconut oil and butter until liquid. Turn off heat and add cocoa powder, honey and mix well.
2. Leave to cool for 10 minutes before adding in pecans and ensure all have an even coating, before place on greaseproof paper and leaving in the fridge to set.
