Cook Time:

  • 1 pinch Stevi
  • 1/16 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 cup Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 2 cups Unsweetened Flaked Coconut


This recipe is suitable for all phases except for the first two weeks of Induction due to the peanut butter.  Please note that the xylitol and stevia can be replaced by an equivalent amount of sucralose.

2. Toast the coconut flakes on a sheet pan for 5 minutes at 350°F.  Once toasted, fold into the chocolate mixture until coated.

3. Drop by tablespoons onto wax paper or a silicon mat on a sheet pan forming 18 mounds.  Allow to cool and harden or place in refrigerator to harden quickly.  May be stored in the refrigerator in an air tight container for up to two weeks or frozen for up to 3 months.  Serve cold or at room temperature.  One haystack = 1 serving.
