Raw Chocolate Coconut Bites are vegan coconut bites made with shredded coconut, cacao powder and agave syrup. It’s a copycat version of Laughing Giraffe Chocolate Snakaroons made with only five ingredients.
No Bake Chocolate Coconut Bites
No baking required to make this perfectly healthy sweet treat. All you need is a food processor, where you will mix all the ingredients, then form them into balls so that you can enjoy these chocolate snakaroons immediately!
These raw vegan chocolate treats are truly energy balls that can provide excellent nutrition, fiber and calories without any guilt of eating something sweet every day!
Ingredients to make these vegan chocolate coconut bites
Shredded coconut – use shredded or desiccated coconut that is organic and unsulphured. Fresh coconut that is unprocessed is essential to the success of these snakaroons. You can buy it at your local grocery store or get it cheaper and bigger on Amazon here.
Agave nectar/syrup – I buy organic one such as this and use it to sweeten my tea and desserts.
Cacao powder – not to be confused with cocoa! Make sure to buy cacao powder, such as this organic kind to get all the benefits of this amazing nutritious food. You will find the 100% cacao powder more versatile and chef friendly.
Raw cacao is not the same as commercial chocolate. 100 years ago, chocolate bars used cacao (ground, heated and melted). But in the last 50 years, things have changed and cacao percentages have dropped steadily. Today some chocolate bars contain zero cacao.
The use of cacao is far more expensive than corn, soy and sugar based chemicals and artificial flavors, so commercial brands like Hershey and Mars have changed their recipes. Don’t think that you are getting the health benefits of cacao when you buy a commercial chocolate bar or cocoa mix.
You will also need vanilla extract, hymalaian salt (or sea salt or kosher salt).

Hi can you freeze these?
These look yummy. But is the servings amount correct – only 8 servings for 3 cups cups of coconut?? That sounds like huge servings. Can you please send me an email to confirm? It doesn’t appear you have set up a notification for replies. Thanks.
I just reviewed my pictures and I got 12, not 8. Thank you for noticing that, Elle! I just updated the info. These bites that I made are packed and feel heavy and dense. I also made them on a bigger side:).
Made these and they are delicious!! I got way more than 8 out of it too
So glad you tried them! I love these.
Looks so yummy! Thanks for sharing.
