It’s good to have good friends. If those friends are ones who give you food? They are the very best! Recently I was lucky enough to be gifted half a gigantic jackfruit by one of those really amazing friends. I don’t know about you but I had never worked with raw jackfruit before but I was super psyched to give it a try.

My wheels started turning with all sorts of savory recipes I’d seen on Instagram, Pinterest and the like. I couldn’t wait to use every bit of this jackfruit. Once I broke down the jackfruit I was able to use the meat to make a barbecue pulled jackfruit recipe that was really amazing. The texture was pretty darn close to pulled pork and it made a hearty plant-based meal that didn’t disappoint.

Once the fibrous strands of “meat” are removed you are able to expose the yellow pod-like seeds inside which are sweet and have almost a melon-like taste to them. My sweet tooth kicked in when I tasted the sweet seeds of the jackfruit. Voila! Jackfruit Coconut Bites were born.

I freed the pods from the jackfruit and removed the seed from inside. You can roast or boil the seeds too and they taste similar to chestnuts. No part of the jackfruit goes to waste! To make these bites, I combined the sweet jackfruit pods with ripe juicy mango, dates and a little bit of coconut flour to help it all bind together. Once I made them into balls I rolled the balls in coconut flakes.

This sweet tropical treat is healthy too! Simple fruits and no refined sugar make these Jackfruit Coconut Bites a big win in my book.
