Almond coconut snowball cookies

I just made these almond coconut snowball cookies yesterday since I felt I wanted to eat something sweet and healthy. Since the holiday season is just upon us I also wanted to make something indicative of the holidays so this is what I came up with…they are plain genius!

These almond coconut snowball cookies will take you about 10 minutes to make, that is it. No bake, gluten free, vegan and good for you, what else can you ask for?

I am planning on making a couple more desserts that are typical of the holidays. For sure they are going to be healthy, so not to worry. I have been thinking of some sort of peppermint brownie patties. I want to make it both vegan and gluten free and maybe no bake…will see what I can come up with.

I am really excited about the holidays this year. This time around we are going to go and visit Tennessee which is where my husband is from. I like going there because there are plenty of antique stores I can visit and also relax a little bit since my kids are mostly entertained.

Last year it was my turn to spend Christmas with my family so we went to Vegas to see my brother. This year is my husband’s turn so Tennessee it is!

Well I hope you get to make these almond coconut snowball cookies. They are super easy to make and delicious. If you are looking for something healthy for the holidays look no further, these are a hit.

Until my next recipe…

  1. Beautiful! I love the flavour and the gorgeous colour contrast between green and dark.

  2. Love matcha! It is an acquired taste, but I am so glad I like it. What a neat recipe, and perfect for my mother-in-law who has Celiac.

  3. Such a great idea and a beautiful-looking muffin!

  4. Ive been wanting to try matcha for so long and when I see a post like this I want to try it even more! Gorgeous muffins…

  5. I can see why you were wishing you’d made a double batch! But hey – great tip on freezing them, so a double batch can’t possibly go to waste (as though there would be any left, though, right?!?!). Muffins always disappear so quickly at my house – my kiddos love nutritious muffins for after-school snacks! Great idea to add the matcha – thanks for the wonderful recipe!

  6. I love anything matcha flavored–especially with chocolate :)

  7. My kids would love to find these in their lunch :) What a great color too!

  8. Hello!!I was wondering if I can replace the almond and coconut flour with rice flour. As you probably know, here in Spain those type of flours are really expensive… I love your blog and you recipes!saludos desde Madrid!

    • You can but you may need a little bit more. Maybe 1 1/2 cups of brown rice flour. If the batter is too wet using 1 cup use more brown rice flour. Saludos y gracias por seguir mi blog :-)
