directions

Step 1

Reserve 1/4 cup (60 mL) shredded coconut in a shallow dish for rolling.

Step 2

Place remaining ingredients in a high-powered food processor and process until fully combined.

Step 3

Form mixture into 1-inch (2.5 cm) balls and roll in reserved shredded coconut, coating balls completely.

Step 4

Transfer to a baking sheet and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight. Keep chilled, or freeze in an airtight container for a few months (though I guarantee they won’t last that long). EnJOY 1 or 2 as a snack or dessert.
