Coconut Snowball Cookies – An ideal Snack for diabetic
Coconut Snowballs is an ideal sugar free cookies recipe. It is a very basic and simple but it is also one of my favourite snack since I am a diabetic. I created this Coconut Snowballs recipe by myself after making a white egg less cake. I did not know what to do with white eggs except meringue. Ah ah I loved meringue so much ! And I thought, how can I do a sort of sugar-free meringue? That is how I created this Coconut Snowball Cookies recipe. I started to firmly whisk the white eggs – like for a meringue – than I added dessicated coconut until I can form balls in my hands. A bit of Naturals stevia powder to sweeten the whole thing and few drops of beet juice that I am always using as a natural pink food colour. Both of the last ingredient are really optional that is why I said 2 ingredients recipe. You can obviously use pink colour from the supermarket if you do not have beet juice.

Coconut Snowballs – Less than 5 g of Carb per bites
I baked them at low heat 160 C for 45 minutes. Like for a meringue it was more a drying step rather than baking step. After baking and cool down it gave crunchy sweet coconut snowballs.
It is really nutritious full of protein brought by the white eggs and low carb as dessicated coconut contains only 22g of carbs/100g. I made about 40 balls with this recipe – – about 12 g a ball – and two of them were enough to feel full at snack time. So it is snack with less than 5 g carb.
