Cinnamon Coconut Bites (AIP Paleo, AI Keto)

Here’s my go-to solution when the Sugar Monster hits: cinnamon coconut bites!  The collagen supplies protein and the coconut is a fantastic source of healthy fat! BOOM! Cravings-be-gone!  Operation Stable Blood Sugar complete.

No collagen? No problem!  Skip it!

I always run by Trader Joe’s for a couple bags of $1.99 unsweetened organic coconut flakes/shreds/chips.  All the same thing.  I prefer to use the larger flakes over the smaller variety; they seem to take less time to breakdown in the food processor.

Keep these little gems in the freezer, and grab ’em when ya need ’em.  (Warning, they don’t last very long around our house!)

Of course, if you’re looking for the perfect treat to take to a 4th of July picnic in Austin, then these might not be your best pick…they will get a bit mushy in the heat. Think about the way your jar of coconut oil on the countertop changes from a solid to a liquid depending on the temp. Same sort of story, but these are a bit more stable. 🙂 But, it probably wouldn’t be the end of the world if ya took a plate full of these yummmies to a summer party…just bring spoons and napkins!

Let me know! Did ya make these? How did they turn out? Leave a comment below!

Instructions
  1. In a food processor, combine coconut chips (also called coconut shreds) and melted coconut oil.
  2. Run the food processor until coconut chips liquify. (It'll look super-watery.) This could take anywhere from 5-10 minutes depending on the speed of your processor.
  3. Add stevia drops, cinnamon, vanilla, sea salt and collagen (if using) to coconut mixture in food processor.
  4. Process until all ingredients are incorporated.
  5. Pour into silicone molds and freeze. (My smaller molds only take about 15 min to set.)

      Thanks so much, Dr. Emily! 🙂 I’m glad you liked them! I’ve found that whenever I create a batch of these the LAST bits of coconut mixture make my FAVORITE bites because they tend to have more of that almost-crunchiness from any of the coconut shreds that don’t get completely pulverized. 🙂

    You should point out that Stevia is not AIP. Especially for people new to eating AIP. Stay away from it if you have an autoimmune disease.

      Thanks for your comment! 🙂 It’s true that Stevia is something you should probably keep out for a bit when just starting out on AIP. Some people do fine with it. Some people not so much. I know last summer I was pretty sensitive to it, but now I’m fine. I appreciate Dr. Izabella Wentz’s philosophy regarding Stevia use. She points out how many people can actually benefit from Stevia, too. It’s so true that proper nutrition requires such an individualized protocol. Thanks for stopping by!
