Coconut Almond Snowballs
These soft and light balls are a healthy version of sweets that can be enjoyed in every occassion. Balls are without added sugar but if you prefer sweeter desserts you can add some sugar in it or maybe a agava syrup. We used here coconut flour which has these typical coconut scent and flavour and is also low in fat.
Toasted ground almonds give a special taste to these great almond balls. Coconut flour is a great ingredients in desserts but it requires much more moisture and generally a lot more eggs. We added a dash of amaretto - almond flavour liqueur.
