Coconut snowballs

So I stumbled across this recipe & new I had to try it. http://www.thekitchn.com/recipe-coconut-snowballs-recipes-from-the-kitchn-181467 You know the drill, I’ll link directly to it when I’m back online on my desktop. Extremely easy & oh so yummy

 

This recipe is directly from her blog. Makes 12 small balls at roughly 50cal each

1 3/4 cups unsweetened shredded coconut, divided
2 teaspoons melted coconut oil
3 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon sea salt

Place 1 cup of shredded coconut in a food processor along with the coconut oil. 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 butter; some coconut texture is good.)Add the maple syrup, coconut milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt and process until well combined. Add 1/2 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 shredded coconut. Refrigerate for at least an hour and up to 5 days. Bring to room temperature before eating

Now I did sub in normal milk instead of the coconut milk & didnt use the extra coconut to roll them in but they still worked out great. Quite sticky to roll but that was just an excuse to lick my fingers after they were all done! Her photo does them way more justice than my rushed attempt!
