It’s almost Christmas, and you know what that means – There are soooooooooo many yummy treats to celebrate the season.
When going sugar free the hardest time is by far Christmas. I mean Candy Canes. Gingerbread houses. Hot chocolates. Fruit Cake (I’m not to keen on that anyway but others might be) What’s not to love about all of those wonderful sweet treats?
But alas, yes, they have sugar in them. (Inserts sad face here)
So of course I have been coming up with many wonderful treats!!
The first recipe is inspired by my families not-so-secret recipe which we love to give to friends and family over Christmas – Snow Balls.
They’re usually made up of chocolate, condensed milk, weetbix, coconut and yep, more chocolate. They’re to die for- but also sooo bad for you, and of course I can’t eat them because they’re filled with sugar. So here is the sugar free version of them, that are just as delicious, if not more.
” Don’t tell Mum, but these are better then hers.” – Andrew
- 10 Weet-bix
- 1 1/2 cups of desiccated coconut
- 1/2 cup of crunchy peanut butter
- 2/3 cup of honey *
- 1/4 cup of coco powder
- Extra 1/2 of desiccated coconut
- (Optional) Sugar Free chocolate
- In a large bowl combine your coconut and weet-bix, and crumb them together. You’ll know when you’re done because the coconut and weet-bix will be will be very fine.
- In a smaller bowl combine the peanut butter and honey together. Then add in the coco powder and mix until smooth.
- Next take the peanut butter mixture and add it to the weet-bix and coconut in the big bowl. Combine together. Once it gets harder to mix, you can ditch your spoon or what ever you are using to mix it with and…… use your hands. The good thing about this is that tasting is almost compulsory
- Once everything is combined, roll into small bit-sized balls and roll in the extra coconut. To store I would place them in the fridge, but leaving them out in a container is fine – they will just get a little dry.
- Serve on a plate, eat them straight out of a container or give them to Santa.
- Take a cute Instagram pic.
