We recently spoke about the pros and cons of cooking with Coconut Oil, a hugely-popular product that I’ve never in fact used before in my cooking. As Daamini mentioned, the rise of Veganism has indeed made this product out to be the one item that every health-conscious person must have in their kitchen, and even more so to replace oils when cooking. Not only a must in the kitchen, beauty experts continue to boast the benefits of using coconut oil for your hair, face and skin. I must have been missing something!
This recipe, where I’m using Coconut and Coconut Oil for the first time, was inspired by the lack of healthier, yummy snacks available in shops aside from the usual indulgent chocolate biscuits and sweets. At just 74 calories a bite and an easy treat for both vegetarians and vegans to make, these bites won’t leave you feeling so guilty. They are light, fruity and coconutty! Everything you want from a light snack on the go.
I’ve added Oatbran which I regularly use in my pancake recipes as its packed with energy and fibre and I’ve also chosen to replace normal fat-free Greek yoghurt with soya yoghurt. More importantly, these bites contain no refined white sugar to make them sweet. The combination of coconut with blueberry works perfectly to give just enough sweetness in one go.
They’re great fun to make with young children – I certainly enjoyed making them myself! Use my photograph guide to help you along the way. You’ll thank me later…
