In honor of the polar vortex I’ve cooked up a recipe for coconut snowball bites. However, unlike the polar vortex, these snowballs will leave you wanting more. This recipe was inspired by my good friend who hosts a pop-up restaurant each week with clean dinners. They consist of home cooked meals with no GMOs, chemicals, additives, preservatives, gluten or major allergins. After I tried her amazing desserts I wanted to explore more rawesome and healthier options.
These bad boys are gluten-free, nut-free, vegan, and the best part is they can be made in five minutes without any cooking. Have some fun with the recipe and change them up by adding berries in the center or chocolate chips. This is a recipe the kids can definitely help you with too.
Check out the recipe for No-Bake Coconut Snowballs after the jump…
No-Bake Coconut Snowballs
1 1/2 cup of shredded coconut (1 cup for mixture and 1/2 cup for coating snowballs)
1/4 cup of raw honey (or pure maple syrup)
2 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
Pinch of sea salt
Makes about 12.
Mix together all your ingredients in a food processor or blender. I blended the ingredients until they were pretty creamy, but if you prefer more texture, you don’t have to blend them for as long.
Form 1-inch balls by rolling mixture in your hands, and then roll the coconut balls through the remaining coconut shavings.
Place on wax paper and chill for at least an hour in the fridge. Take them out and enjoy!
