coconut, almond, quinoa, treats


I was struggling to come up with a name for these treats. They are not biscuits, they are not cakes, and they are not really anywhere in between either. They are, however, loaded with coconut and almonds, and they're round, so there you have, coco-almo-nut balls.

I actually made these entirely by accident after blundering up a cookie recipe. Everything was in cup measurements and a failed miserably trying to convert everything into grams.

Realising things were not going to plan, I improvised, making a few other changes here and there to see what I came up with. Coco-Almo-Nut Balls was the result, and quite a tasty one too.
