No Bake Coconut Balls Recipe

These No Bake Coconut Balls are unique. And simple to make. The only thing you want to be sure of is that your unsweetened coconut flakes are fairly small. The Bob’s Red Mill shredded, unsweetened coconut is tiny enough to use without having to run your unsweetened shredded coconut through the mini processor.

Hubby says these remind him of the Toasted Coconut Good Humor Bars that were sold off the Good Humor truck when he was a kid. Hubby adores these No Bake Coconut Balls. I have given them away to people who do not like sweets, who do like sweets, and people who fall in between. These have been universally loved by all!

Give ’em a try. They are truly easy to make, and will last in the fridge for up to a week so you can make them ahead of time for a party or work function.
