Total time: 10 min
Serves: 12 balls


  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup, honey, or agave


  • Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor (not by hand to avoid falling apart).
  • Roll the mixture into balls.
  • Embrace the coconut oil on your hands, as it’s beneficial for soft skin.
  • Roll the balls in shredded coconut, if desired.
  • Place the balls on a parchment or wax-lined plate, and refrigerate or freeze until hard.
  • Store leftovers in the refrigerator or freezer.

To make the rolling process easier, you can chill the mixture in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before shaping into balls. This will firm up the mixture and make it less sticky.
