Battys’ Blueberry Butter Balls

Posted: June 14, 2010 in Primal Living

Whilst looking through one of the forums I’m a member of I came across this recipe which looks amazingly delicious!  Think I’m going to have a go at making these some time soon!

INGREDIENTS:
1 cup butter, unsalted
1/2 cup blueberries
2 egg yolks
3 T shredded coconut, unsweetened
1T vanilla

DIRECTIONS:
let the butter sit out until soft. puree your blueberries in a food processor. if they are frozen, defrost them first otherwise they’ll give you all kinds of issues when you mix them in with the butter. in a medium mixing bowl, add egg yolk, butter, vanilla, and blueberries. use a hand mixer to combine everything until fluffy and peak-y.

you *can*, if you want, add some honey, but it is absolutely not necessary if you have good quality blueberries and vanilla. you can probably add a dash or two more vanilla, too, to taste.

fold in the coconut until well combined. stick the entire bowl in the fridge and let sit for 45 mins to an hour. you want the mixture pretty solid.

take the mixture out and form into one inch balls. roll in extra shredded coconut to coat.

store in an airtight container in the fridge, otherwise they’ll get all melty on warm days.

VARIATIONS:
these are awesome as is, but you can also add ground almonds, walnuts, shredded dried figs, etc, for added texture and flavor. i didn’t because i am avoiding that stuff

enjoy!
