Dark cocoa and coconut haystacks

Here is a quick, easy vegan recipe, literally five minutes!  It produces little balls of healthy fats- which is important to get in your diet, especially if you are eating a plant-based diet which is naturally lower in fat.
The fat is from coconut, which is a saturated fat, but a healthier one!

No baking required!

1.5 c raw, shredded coconut
1/2 c agave (I used Blue Agave)
3/4 c dark cocoa powder
splash of vanilla
1/4 cup coconut oil

In a large bowl, mix ingredients together well.  With wet hands, form into small, packed balls about 2" across.  Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet and pop in the freezer.  I leave them in the freezer and grab one when I want one.  You can also wrap then individually in plastic wrap and store in the freezer.
