Paleo Chocolate Crunchies

I simply can't think of a title good enough to describe the deliciousness of these sweet treats. They are SO good that I made a tiny batch this time (it's the second time that I've made them and I made 1/4 of the recipe) in order to help with portion control- haha.

(this yields a large portion of about 15-20 "crunchies")

  • 1 cup of chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup of almond butter
  • 1/3 cup of raw honey
  • 1/3 cup of coconut oil (I use a bit less to make them less messy and hold up a bit better)
  • 1 cup of Coconut Flakes (I crumble them to make them a bit smaller)
  • 1 cup of pecan pieces
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon (eyeball it)
  • Salt (a sprinkle on top of each finished "crunchie" before you let it cool


  1. melt chocolate, almond butter and honey on the stove top over medium heat
  2. Add coconut flakes, pecan pieces and cinnamon to the mixture
  3. Turn down the heat and mix a final few times
  4. spoon mixture onto a baking tray or even into molds (I used my infamous heart shaped mold the second time that I made it. They popped out very easily)
  5. sprinkle just a bit of salt over each crunchie
  6. Set in the freezer for 20-30 minutes or until solid
  7. ENJOY!

  1. You don't mention in the directions when to add the coconut oil.
