Colorful Party Puffs: (raw, vegetarian, gluten-free) - borrowed and revised from Victoria Rechcygl www.innatemama.com
2.5 Cups of Raw Coconut Flakes
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
2 Tbs Raw Honey (substitute in agave/coconut nectar to make it vegan)
2 Tbs Maple Syrup (the real deal!)
1 tsp Vanilla
|Green Party Puffs|
Here comes the fun part! Nolan was having a St. Patty's Day party in school and I was trying to create a "green" snack that the kids would like and still be healthy! Because these little balls are white you can add juiced fruits and veggies to add color. Green (with juiced spinach/greens), Pink/Red (with juiced beets, strawberries or raspberries), Blue/Purple (juiced blueberries), Orange/Yellow (juiced oranges or carrots). Obviously the more juice you add (which you do NOT need alot of), the darker the color. You can make Pink Puffs for Valentines Day, Red, White and Blue Puffs for the 4th of July, or "custom-color" for a birthday party.
This still keeps the dessert raw, vegetarian and gluten-free as well as CHEMICAL-FREE. I always avoid food colorings & dyes - they are chemicals that lead to cancer, and ADD/ADHD. They are actually illegal in Great Britain, and probably many other European countries, but, of course, not here yet!
