Yum! thank you for this simple recipe, I love coconut.

Oh, I have to try this! I love coconut, but most of the recipes I’ve found for similar treats involve either chocolate or peanut butter and often large amounts of powdered sugar. I find them a little too sweet.
Now this is a recipe that sounds delicious and healthy! I love coconut. I wonder how it would be if you used healthy Lakanto powdered sugar (monk sugar) to substitute for the powered sugar. I definitely am making these.
