Servings 12 coconut snowballs

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups unsweetened shredded coconut, divided
  • 2 tsp melted coconut oil
  • 3 Tbsp organic raw honey
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt

Instructions

  • Melt the coconut oil and place it with 1 cup of the shredded coconut in a food processor. Process on high speed, scraping down the sides periodically until it reaches a paste-like consistency. (It does not have to be completely smooth like coconut butter; some texture is good.)
  • Add the honey, coconut milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt and process until well combined. Add ½ cup plus 2 Tablespoons of shredded coconut and pulse until just combined.
  • Shape the mixture into 12 (1-inch) balls and coat with the remaining 2 Tablespoons of shredded coconut. Refrigerate for at least an hour and up to 5 days. Eat cold or bring to room temperature before eating, depending on personal preference.

Notes

*Swap the honey with pure maple syrup to make these vegan.
