Coconut Balls add an element of variety to most any table.
No Sugar Added Coconut Balls

Surprisingly, to some, there are some benefits to coconut.
Coconuts are high in potassium, iron and fiber.
Coconuts may be high in flavor but, they are still not low calorie. I tend to use my shredded coconut in moderation and as an accent to something else.
You will need some shredded coconut for this recipe.
