How to make chocolate brazil nut energy bites:

Melt the cocoa butter in the jar in the microwave for about a minute. Mix it with a spoon and then pop it in the microwave for another 30 seconds if it needs to be smoothed out more.

Combine the cocoa butter, almond butter, cocoa, agave, and sea salt in the food processor and process until the ingredients are combined and smooth. Add the brazil nuts to the food processor.

Use a small cookie scooper to scoop balls of the mixture into a lined baking sheet. You can eat them immediately, chill as is, or roll them into smooth balls.

Sprinkle the top with crumbled brazil nuts and sea salt. Store in the fridge until you’re ready to eat!
