Jam-filled Coconut Thumbprints
About a month ago I collaborated with Stephanie from Nutrition Redefined and shared this recipe on her summit The Healthy Happy Mom Summit. If you haven’t yet check it out, you should! Inside you’ll find 30 guests speakers, 5 workout videos, and 5 recipes – all to help you live your healthiest and happiest life.
But in case you missed this recipe when it was available for free, I’m sharing it here with you today.
Ever since I made my Chocolate Espresso thumbprints I’ve fallen in love with the idea of thumbprints. They are just so cute and pretty! And it’s so easy to make because all you need is a soft no-bake energy bite and make an indent with your thumb. Then fill it with your favorite flavors. Drizzle with some dark or white chocolate for some extra fanciness and viola! You’ve got a beautiful and delicious dessert. .
This time I made a coconut base, and what pairs better with coconut than raspberry?? So I filled it with raspberry jam. So good! Perfect for storing in the freezer when you need a quick snack or energy boost. Enjoy!
