Prep time

10 min.

  • 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut and a bit for dusting
  • 2 Tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • 3 Tbsp extra-virgin coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Pulse the shredded coconut in a grinder for a few seconds until texture becomes like thick flour. Transfer coconut flour to a bowl, and add other ingredients. Stir with a spoon until you get a thick paste.

Leave the mixture for few minutes at room temperature, and then transfer it to the refrigerator for 20 minutes until mixture become firm and hardened.

Dose mixture with a teaspoon, and form small bite-size balls with your hand. Immediately roll ball in shredded coconut, and place on a wax paper.

Place finished coconut bites in a refrigerator to cool completely. Keep in a cool place until serving.
