No bake coconut snowballs. They're the perfect dessert or snack for athletes, students and people who want something sweet made with 3 natural ingredients.
December is here and Christmas is just around the corner, yay! I'm a winter person. I was born in winter (January 1) and Chistmas is one my favorite time of the year, so we're going to share lots of delicious, plant-based recipes for the holidays and also a Christmas gift guide for you guys. I'm so excited!
Everybody loves balls and truffles, they're so easy to make, tastes amazing and can be a nice present. I love food so much, so I'm so happy when someone prepares something delicious for me with all her or his love.
But you don't have to make these coconut snowballs only for Christmas, they're a super tasty dessert or snack for any time of the year. The're perfect for athletes, students or people who want something sweet made with natural ingredients: shredded coconut, almond flour and maple or agave syrup, that's all! And they're ready in 15 minutes. You really NEED to try them!

No Bake Coconut Snowballs (3 Ingredients!)
- 1 and ¼ cup shredded coconut
- ⅓ cup almond flour
- ¼ cup maple or agave syrup
- Add 1 cup of shredded coconut (75 g), almond flour and maple or agave syrup to a food processor and blend until well combined.
- Make balls with your hands. We made 10.
- Finally, roll the balls in some shredded coconut (about ¼ cup or 20 g).
- Keep the coconut snowballs in a sealed container in the fridge for up to a week.
- If the dough is too dry, add more syrup and if it's too watery, add more shredded coconut or almond flour.
- Feel free to use store-bought almond flour or blend raw almonds in a food processor or powerful blender.
- I've only made this recipe using maple or agave syrup, but I think any syrup will do.
Going to make these. They look delicious. Just wondering if they freeze well.

Hi Selena! Hope you like it 🙂 I haven't tried it myself but I think it's possible to freeze it!
Can you substitute the maple syrup with golden syrup?
I wonder if coconut flour would work instead?
Hi Sara! I haven't tried it myself, but I don't think it's going to work...
I made these, they are yummie though a little bit too sweet for my taste (and I am a major sweet tooth). They didn't last a day, let alone a week, not possible.
I am wondering how to make them a bit less sweet, would they still stick with less syrup?
I also found out if I make my hands wet, the balls wouldn't stick so much to my hands and I could make better balls.
Hi Winnie! I've never made them using less syrup, but you could add some coconut oil instead or even some regular or coconut water, I think it should work 🙂
These are so delicious!!! I made a batch when my Father in law was visiting and he was so thrilled! Thank you guys for all the great recipes.
Hi Myeshia! You're so welcome and thank YOU for making this recipe 😉
Love this recipe! Super-simple and great food for going on a little hike. I used a blender shaft as I don't have a food processor and it worked just fine. Gracias for the recipe 🙂
Hi Rick! De nada 😉 So glad you liked it!
Just made these and they are fabulous and so simple! In fact, I also just made your Lentil Curry which we will have for dinner tonight. So, it's a SimpleVeganBlog night tonight!
Thank you so much for posting! I am not a great cook but want to make healthy meals for my family. Your blog is a huge help!
Hi Kate! So glad you liked our recipes 🙂 Thank you so much for your comment. Have a nice day!
Hi, What could i use as a replacement for almond flour? I want to do this with my nursery class but i have a child with an almond allergy.
Hi Charlotte! You could use any other nut flour and if he/she can't eat nuts, try with coconut or oat flour. Hope it works!

HI there, thank you for your easy, delicious go to vegan recipes! My kids loved your egg roll and sweet n sour sauce...I am excited to try more of your recipes with them. We are new to veganism! Trying to stay whole food vegan instead of store bought vegan type of eating. Of course when we absolutely don't have the time we opt from the kitchen BUT we are so glad for blogs like yours! If we don't have a food processor, we left ours at my parents home about 4 hours away, could we just mix it or use a hand held blender?
Thank you again!

Could we also add in some coconut butter? I tend to not hit my fat consumption goals so thought if I added some coconut butter I could amp up the total fat on these (for me only and my kids and husband will have to do without as they are not Vegan, only when I cook),
Hi Monique! I think you could mix all the ingredients in a bowl, it should work. I would add coconut oil instead of coconut butter, but you could try. If you add some fat, you'll need to add less syrup or more shredded coconut/almond flour. Hope it helps!
they look so amazing! I have the same question: with amond powder it is work well too ?
Many thanks for this nice dessert 🙂
Hi Loulou! Yes, feel free to grind your own almonds if you want 🙂
ramona smith says
I plan to make this today but don't have almond flour -- can I just grind whole almonds into a flour?
Hi Ramona! Yes, as you can read in the recipe box, it also works 🙂
Rmaona Smith says
I made them this weekend and they are Fantastic! I plan to make another batch this week.
So glad you liked them 😀
