Qumbe (East African Coconut Candy)
Recently I was planning an African-themed party, and I came across a recipe for a Somali snack by this name. The first version I tried was a little too sweet for me, and the consistency was all wrong for rolling into balls. I made some adjustments in the proportions, and this is the result. Yum!
This tasty snack is gluten-free, but the almond meal could be switched out for flour (wheat, soy, whatever) if you can't eat nuts.
Coconut cream can be used in place of the coconut milk, if desired.
The mixture will be gooey, but it will probably still be easier to roll than you might expect. If it isn't, add more almond flour a little at a time till of rollable consistency.
