Coconut Almond Snowballs

These soft and light balls are a healthy version of sweets that can be enjoyed in every occasion. Easy to make these balls don't contain any added sugar but if you prefer sweeter dessert you can add some agave syrup. 

In this recipe we use coconut flour which gives balls typical coconut scent while at the same time it is low in fat. Coconut flour which is gluten-free flour, can be bought from healthy food stores and can be used as substitute for other flours when making bread, pancakes, cookies, muffins or other baked goods. Just note that coconut flour tends to absorb more liquid than other flours.
