Servings: 12 serves
- 2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
- 2 tablespoon maple syrup
- 2 tablespoon coconut butter recipe available on my site. see notes for link
Pop all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse for 1-2 minutes until mixture is combined (you want it to just be combined - not a paste)
Using a heaped teaspoon, fill a mini muffin pan with the mixture. It will be crumbly, just press down with your fingers until compacted and firm and then pop in the fridge for a couple of hours
Once they have set, pop them out of the mini muffin mould and enjoy
Keep stored in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week. You can also keep stored in the freezer for longer

If you don't have coconut butter you can just leave it out. You will just need to leave the Roughs in the fridge for a bit longer for them to set well enough.
