Cinnamon Fat Balls [gluten-free, paleo, sugar-free, vegan option]

IMG_1556As I sit down to write this post, I couldn’t help myself from enjoying one of these cinnamon fat balls! These balls are my favorite ones that I have ever made. They melt in your mouth and taste like cinnamon cookie dough but much healthier, and in my opinion, yummier!

These balls are gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, sugar-free, and they have a vegan option too! I use melted ghee in these balls because it is a nutrient-packed, healthy fat source and tastes delicious. Being lactose intolerant, I sometimes miss that buttery flavor, but I have found that ghee is literally the best. thing. ever. I started using ghee about two years ago, and now I can’t imagine cooking without it.

At first, I was skeptical as to if these balls were going to be a winner, but boy did I surprise myself! The sweet essence yielded from the cinnamon and vanilla makes these the perfect low sugar snack to satisfy a sweet craving. And let me tell ya when I say these balls are addictive – the melt in your mouth, cookie dough texture sensation is pure heaven.

This recipe was inspired by a recipe from one of my biggest mentors and inspirations Rachael De Vaux of Rachael’s Good Eats.

I am so excited for you guys to try out this recipe, and I cannot wait to hear what you guys think!

[makes 10 balls]

Ingredients : 

  • 3 tb coconut butter, measured when melted
  • 3 tb MCT oil
  • 2 tb ghee, melted (I like this one – sub. coconut oil for vegan)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 + 1/3 c almond flour
  • 2 tb coconut flour
  • 2 tb flax meal
  • 2 tsp cinnamon, plus more for sprinkling on top

Instructions : 

  1. In a large bowl, thoroughly together the melted coconut butter, MCT oil, melted ghee, and vanilla.
  2. Stir in the almond flour, coconut flour, flax meal, and cinnamon until well combined.
  3. Place the mixture in the freezer for 5-10 minutes, until the dough firms up a bit.
  4. With a cookie scoop (or using your hands) scoop the dough into 10 even balls and sprinkle with cinnamon, and store in an airtight container in the freezer.

Enjoy!

Lots of love, Worth
