Chocolates are not out of reach of vegans ! Here is a dashingly tasty chocolate made with the choicest of ingredients.

The Healthy Brazilian Nut Chocolate Balls are made with Brazilian nuts and cocoa, held together with a little coconut oil and sweetened with some maple syrup (for vegans) or honey.

The chocolaty balls are rolled in desiccated coconut to improve the mouth-feel and enhance the visual appeal. We have made the chocolate balls less sweet to keep it healthy but you can add a little more maple syrup or honey if you want it sweeter.

This can be stored in an air-tight container in the fridge for at least a week, and enjoyed as dessert or as a snack.

Try other healthy desserts like Peanut Butter Coconut Balls or Healthy No Bake Cookies .
