As it is made from rice, a grain, it is not an approved paleo sweetener. The great thing about rice malt syrup is that it is fructose free and therefore a better choice than honey or maple syrup (which are both paleo approved)  2 Tblsp maple syrup 1/3 cup dessicated coconut pinch sea salt opt. 8 drops pure peppermint essential oil extra coconut for coating Directions Soak almonds and dates for an hour to help activate the enzymes if you have time, otherwise blend almonds into a meal, add all other ingredients and blend to combine well, you can add the seeds later as not to totally pulverise ( I use no 6 on thermomix). Taste and adjust anything for more sweetener or chocolate or peppermint flavour. Roll into balls, then roll into the coconut, if it’s too sticky you may need to add more coconut oil or freeze a little bit to handle better. Once into balls lay separate onto a plate for the fridge to set. Can be put into freezer or keep in fridge for couple weeks if they last that long. Enjoy a couple every day for some good fats and nutrition. A yummy healthy snack!     Share this with your friends on...
