Nutella Haystacks (Vegan + Grain-free)

Hi friends. I'm going back and revisiting some absolute all-time favorites from my old blog. My sweet friend Mickey was asking me about this recipe a few months back and if she approves, then I really know they must be delicious. She is a pretty amazing cook/recipe creator herself (see her book here!) These are a super adabtable recipe and a clean treat. I think you'll totally love them.

Nutella Haystacks (Vegan + Grain-free)

Start by gently heating 3oz dark chocolate, 1/3 cup nut butter (for that nutella-y taste use hazelnut butter!), 2 tablespoons coconut oil, 1 tablespoon carob powder, 1 tablespoon maple syrup, a pinch of pink salt and a dash of vanilla extract together over a double boiler. Once ingredients have melted together, remove from heat and combine well. Add 1 cup of shredded coconut and combine well. Place scoops of dough onto a lined baking sheet. Transfer to freezer and let sit for at least one hour. Store in fridge.
