How To Make Keto Coconut Balls

If you want to create a soft sweet coconut truffle, I recommend using the crystal sweetener recipe.


The texture is to terrific and melts in your mouth. All you need to make them is:

  • Unsweetened Desiccated Coconut
  • Superfine Almond Flour – almond meal will work too, but the color of the balls will be darker.
  • Water
  • Sugar-free Crystal Sweetener  – erythritol or monk fruit or xylitol.
  • Coconut Oil – refined or unrefined.

  • Cover a plate with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a food processor, with the S blade attachment add all the ingredients, unsweetened desiccated coconut, almond flour, sweetener, melted coconut oil, and water.
  • Process on medium speed for 1-2 minutes until it forms a sticky wet dough easy to bring together in your hands to shape balls. If too dry, add an extra 1 tablespoon of water up to 2 tablespoons in total. Process again until it sticks together.
  • Stop the food processor and scoop out some coconut ball dough in your hands. Roll to form a ball, place on the prepared plate. Repeat until you form 16 balls.


  • You can decorate the snowballs by sprinkling powdered sugar-free sweetener on top or rolling the balls into the desiccated coconut.
  • The texture is very soft, melt in your mouth and you can serve immediately or store in the fridge before eating.


  • Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks or freeze. Can be eaten half-frozen, frozen, or defrosted.


Nutrition panel is for the one keto coconut balls using sugar-free crystal sweetener (erythritol), 1.2 grams of net carbs per ball
White coconut balls color: I recommend to use super-fine almond flour, it is a very white/beige flour made from blanched almonds. It will create beautiful super white coconut snowballs cookies as in the picture.
In my video, I am using almond meal made from unblanched almonds. You can see there are tiny brown bites of almond skin on the balls at the end. Still delicious but less white for Christmas.

    39 Thoughts On No Bake Coconut Balls Recipe (1g Net Carbs)
    • You can replace almond flour by sesame seed flour or sunflower seed flours, both are keto approved. Enjoy, XOXO Carine

  1. 5 stars
    First time I made these, I ended up eating them all in a day, which I don’t recommend because you will end up severely constipated the next day or two. They really are that good.

    Tried other recipes for fat bombs and snacks, but I find myself always coming back to these as nothing beats the simplicity and flavor of these coconut balls. In my latest batch, I added in 2tbsp of raw cacao powder and increased the total oil to 4tbsp while substituting 2tbsp of coconut oil with ghee, and They were literally the best fat bomb I’ve ever had.

    No more fiddling around with brownies molds or fat bombs that start melting as soon as they come out of the fridge. These are game changers.

    • Thanks for the lovely comment, but make sure you only eat 1 or 2 fat bomb in a day. They are high in fat and will compromise your weight loss journey as well if you overeat them. Enjoy the recipes on the blog, XOXO Carine

    • That may work but it will be very hard to get all the ingredients into a hand blender as the amount required in the recipe is large. You need all the ingredients at the time in the food processor for best result. Enjoy, XOXO Carine.

    • It won’t work with coconut flour simply because cocontu flour contains 4 times more fiber than almond flour and it will absorb all the liquid and never come together. BUT, the option is sunflower seed flour, same ratio! That is a great nut free option for you. Enjoy, XOXO Carine.

    So glad to hear about the long shelf life and that your readers have frozen them with success. I will be trying this recipe tonight and sending to my diabetic sister in Texas. Thanks,

    • Amazing Theresa! but you don’t have to freeze those, simply keep in the fridge up to a month in a cookie jar or airtight container! I wish you a Merry Christmas from New Zealand. XOXO Carine.

    How did you get your coconut balls to turn out so white given the color in the sweetener? I’ve tried and mine are just not as white. Any tips?

    • Hello! It really depends on the sweetener you are using. I love to use either brown rice syrup or sugar free liquid maple syrup. Both are lighter in color and also remember it is a picture, full light on so I admit that it real life they are slightly les white, but still white ! Enjoy the recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

    Hello Carine…I made these last night…and without a food processor…they came out great and I had to use the max liquid that you recommended (maybe because I was mixing by hand). My food processor is the small one and it didn’t fit the recipe amount. Anyway, who knew…but I made them exactly per the recipe and they are delicious. We will enjoy them tonight at our pre-Christmas dinner. Cheers…ileana

      Thanks for leaving this comment! I don’t have a food processor and I was dying to make this…I’m glad to know it worked out…off to prep these bad boys!

    • I am very happy to read your comment today! I never tested those coconut balls without my food processor so I am very happy to know it works in a mixing bowl ! Since I am having a food processor I tend to over use it 🙂 Thanks for sharing and for testing my recipes. Have a lovely end of year. Merry Christmas and happy new years ! Carine.

    I am really excited about this recipe! I do not have a food processor, how can I still make these cocoanut balls??

    • Hello ! No, I am sorry you really need a food processor to make those balls or the batter won’t hold together. Thanks so much for trying my recipe. Enjoy the blog. XOXO Carine.

    Aloha Carine:

    I made coconut milk this morning for my overnight oatmeal…..what to do with the coconut meal from the juicer? Your recipe takes care of the coconut meal. I hate to waste food, so this is a great way to use the coconut meal from making the milk.

    I made with coconut flour as I did not have almond flour.
    I added some dried rose petals (powder) to 1/3 of the batch with some rose water and will roll the balls in the petal powder also
    I have Matcha green tea powder to roll 1/3 of the batch in
    I also have cacao powder to roll the last 1/3 of the batch in
    I also have some passion fruit powder that I may roll some of the balls in.
    I melted some white chocolate and some Dark chocolate to drizzle on the truffles when they are ready to put into the refrigerator. I am putting them in small “cupcake” papers to keep their shape and outer powder integral.

    I will send a picture of the final production if you will tell me how to add to this or another comment. (possibly your email?)

    • Hello! That sounds wonderful! I am excited to see the picture, share on instagram and tag my account ever send it to carine at Thank you SO much for sharing your story and how you used coconut meal and coconut flour in this recipe, Inspiring ! Love from NZ, XOXO Carine.

    • Yes ! it is basically the same thing ! both will work in this recipe. The coconut extract is a little more concentrate and has a stronger coconut flavor. Enjoy the lovely coconut balls. xoxo Carine.

    • I freeze them all the time! Prior to eating keto, I loved all my candy bars frozen, so still like frozen treats! I eat them right out of the freezer. I make them smaller so there are more per recipe and I can eat 1 or 2 depending on how big the sweet tooth moment is! LOL!

      • That is such a great comment! I would never thought about freezing my raw balls 🙂 I will try next time and give a bite into the frozen one too 🙂 Have a lovely time on the blog. XOXO Carine.

    • Hi,I did not try to freeze those raw coconut balls. I always enjoyed them fresh. The recipe took barely 10 minutes to prepare and then I store them up to 4 weeks in the fridge in an airtight container. I know that some people froze raw balls so I am sure it will work perfectly. Make sure you use an airtight plastic bag or box and maybe defrost the day before. Let me know how it taste if you try freezing those! Carine.

    Hi Carine,

    Just wanted to have a look for the recipe as some guys pinned it from pinterest and I have loads of desiccated coconut :-). I was wondering if I could use also honey or maple sirup ?

    hi my sister is seeing a nutrisionist at the moment and she has asked me to make these for her as she has nothing to eat for christmas at dessert time! i was just wondering how many this recipe made because i dont need to make that many for one person

    • Hi Lucy, I am sorry for the late reply. I was away on Christmas holiday and I did not have access to my email. This coconut balls recipe makes about 25 coconut balls, golf ball size. I hope you will try the recipe, even after christmas. It is a lovely treat for people on sugar free diet. Enjoy and Merry Christmas. Carine.

    Hi Carine–

    Thanks for this great easy recipe. Can you tell me how many snowballs this amount can expect to yield?


  10. Hi Maria, You probably can but it will not dissolve very well as coconut sugar is bit more ‘grainy’ than stevia powder. I will try 4 tablespoon of brown rice malt syrup or honey. Those ‘sticky’ natural sweetener will hold the batter while adding sweetness and avoid the ‘crunch’ of coconut sugar. I hope you will enjoy this recipe ! thanks for coming on the blog 🙂 Carine.
