Snow Bites

"Every bite of these rich little snowy balls enchants the senses, without any added sugar. An ideal gift for friends and family who like to limit the sweet treats around Christmas."

Makes: 12


½ cup quick-cooking oats

2/3 cup cashews

3 tablespoons agave syrup

1 pinch ground vanilla

1 pinch sea salt

4 tablespoons desiccated coconut

Add the oats and cashews to a food processor or blender and blend until you have a fine meal. Add the agave syrup, vanilla, salt, and 1 tablespoon water and blend again briefly.

Transfer the mixture to a bowl. Combine with 2 tablespoons of the desiccated coconut and shape into small balls. Roll the balls in the remaining coconut.

Stored in a tin or jar in the refrigerator, the snow bites will keep for about a week.
