Coconut snowballs

I made Coconut Snowballs last night for a late night dessert, and they didn’t last long! I knew I wanted something sweet, and it was a tough call between these babies and Chocolate Coconut Truffles — both from Sarma’s Living Raw Food. The snowballs won out because they were easier to make, and called for only a few ingredients — brazil nuts, shredded coconut, agave and coconut oil.

They were good! My one complaint is that they were majorly oily. I guess this shouldn’t be surprising, given brazil nuts have quite a high fat content, but next time I’ll probably alter the recipe by cutting out the coconut oil and maybe using dates instead of agave for some extra stickiness.

I wish I had some left for a snack today, but sadly they were all devoured 🙂
