Try these vegan, nut free coconut cinnamon balls!
1 3/4 cups shredded coconut
2 tsp melted coconut oil
4 Medjool dates
2 T maple syrup (optional – the dates act as a sweetener here, but some added maple flavour is lovely too.)
2 T coconut milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Use a food processor to whiz the coconut, oil and dates together until a paste forms. This can take a while.
Add the rest of the ingredients, reserving 1/4 cup coconut for rolling, and pulse to combine.
Form into balls and roll in the reserved coconut.
Allow to set (and store) in the fridge (or freezer).
