Coconut Snowballs

These little white treats are fantastic to make with your kids although my daughter generally eats half the mixture before we even get to roll it in the coconut! It's a great recipe for festive parties too as they are nut and refined sugar free and you can store them in the freezer so they are perfect if last minute guests pop in!


Makes 8 snowballs


1 cup (or 65g) desiccated coconut plus 3 tbsp for coating

1 tbsp coconut oil

2 tbsp maple syrup

2 tbsp coconut milk

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon


Line a baking tray or tupperware box with baking parchment and set aside.

Place all the ingredients, apart from the final 3 tbsp coconut, in a food processor and blend until it starts to come together in a paste. Put the remaining coconut on a plate and set aside. Using your hands roll the coconut mixture into 8 even balls and then roll in the remaining coconut until you have an even covering. Place directly on the prepared baking tray and place in the freezer for a minimum of 2 hours to set. [Note: I store mine in the freezer and take out as and when I need them.]
