Chocolate Coconut Pistachio Bites {Paleo/Vegan}



  • 1 cup pistachios (no shell)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 heaping cup of cocoa powder or chocolate protein if you don’t have cocoa
  • 1/3 cup almond butter (or nut butter of choice)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup or honey (non vegans)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Optional add in -1/2 tsp coconut extract for extra coconut taste


  1. Blend pistachios in a food processor. Transfer into a large bowl and add in all the remaining dry ingredients with the honey being the last . Add your extracts and and any other add ins. Mix well (I use my hands) then roll into bite size balls. Coat bites (once frozen) cocoa or coconut flakes if desired.
  2. If the batter is too dry add more almond butter and/or honey. If it’s too wet, add more coconut flour.
  3. Makes about 26-28 bites. Freeze or keep in refrigerator to maintain freshness.


If are looking to reduce the sugar intake, reduce honey to 1/4 cup and add in 1 more tbsp of nut butter (creamy natural). I tried it this way as well and used 2 tsp Nektar Naturals honey to sweeten these without the extra sugar.
