This easy little snack is sugar-free (if you use unsweetened coconut) and gluten-free. It is fun for kids to make and requires no baking. For a tasty but less healthy variation, add chocolate chips. Chill if desired. Enjoy!

Update: My paleo friend didn't care for these either. Well it is what it says - not sweet. They are cute. I made the recipe with unsweetened coconut flakes and almond butter. Since these are little tasty bite snacks I was wanting something a little sweeter. So I added 1 scoop (4 Tbsp.) of chocolate whey isolate powder. Still needed more sweetening. So I added 1 tsp agave syrup. It's easy and fun and with your own personal tweaks is a useful healthy recipe. It just wasn't satisfying my sweet tooth. Read More
