• 1 Cup of Cashews (150g)
  • 1/2 Cup of Desiccated Coconut (45g) + extra for coating
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Vanilla Powder or 1 Vanilla Pod
  • 1 Tablespoon of Melted Coconut Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon of Maple Syrup

These seriously rival my Cookie Dough Balls for the top spot in my list of favourite treats. The recipes are really similar but these have a gorgeous milky, coconutty flavour that’s just so moreish. I love that there’s only 5 simple ingredients, and best of all there’s only a tablespoon of maple syrup in the whole batch but they taste super sweet. They’re the perfect grab and go snack.

Preheat the oven to 180’C. Roast the cashews at 180’C for about 8 minutes until golden.

When the cashews are cool enough to handle, add them to your food processor and blend on high. Keep blending, scraping down the sides as needed, until you have a very fine cashew flour. Add in the vanilla powder and desiccated coconut and continue blending until it is so fine that it is starting to stick together like the very early stage of cashew butter.

Drizzle in the melted coconut oil and maple syrup. Blend on high until you have a smooth mixture.

Use your hands to roll the mixture into balls and then roll them in some more coconut to coat them.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

    Just wondering where do you get your vanilla powder? What brand is it?

    Would these work with almonds?

    Hi. Just wondering can I substitute vanilla protein powder in recipes where you use vanilla powder?

    • Indy Power says:

      Hi Kate! No vanilla protein powder is very different. If you can’t find vanilla powder (I get it on amazon) you can use a vanilla pod instead. You just slice it down the side and scrape out the seeds- you need about 1 vanilla pod for 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla powder x

    Vanilla bean paste any good in this Indy. I have a jar I have yet to open. Thanks, x J

    • Indy Power says:

      Yep you can use vanilla bean paste if you like, it depends on what kind but I think you’ll have to use more than 1/4 teaspoon (most of them contain sugar so you might want to use less maple syrup too) x
