Dried Blueberry Coconut Balls - Paleo

I love healthy snack balls! They are fun to pop in when you have a craving, or need something small to tide you over before a meal, or are having a snack attack and want it to be good for you, and taste like it isn’t. ๐Ÿ™‚

Coconut Blueberry Balls - Healthy Snacking - Grain Free

Blueberry Coconut Balls for Healthy Snack Attacks

Here’s a recipe for Blueberry Coconut Snack Balls that fits the bill perfectly!

Blueberry Coconut Snack Balls


1/3 Cup of Coconut Flour

1/3 Cup of Dried Blueberries (I used these)

1/4 Cup of Avocado Oil or Coconut Oil

2 Tablespoons of Honey

1 Tablespoon of Ground Flax

1 Teaspoon of Lemon Juice

1/4 Teaspoon of Sea Salt

1/4 Teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon

1 Cup of Toasted Coconut, Pulverized (I used Dang Coconut Chips that are already toasted, but you can toast your own.)


In a medium bowl, add the coconut flour, flax, and salt. Mix with a whisk. In a separate bowl whisk together the honey, oil, vanilla and lemon juice. If using coconut oil, melt it just until runny. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry, and blend with a hand held mixer. Fold in the dried blueberries.

Place your toasted coconut in a mini food processor or use a mortise and pestle to pulverize the coconut flakes.

Now, scoop the dough into seven tablespoon sized balls, and roll in the pulverized toasted coconut.

Refrigerate and enjoy!

Banana Pineapple Coconut Leather

Are you ready for a portable treat that is oh so satisfyingly chewy and good for you? Was that a yea? Then these scrumptious snacks are going to make your day! I promised you some fruit roll ups, and this is the first one with more to come. The first time I made these, they were devoured right away, and I had to guard the last one for myself. They aren’t difficult, but you do have to wait for the dehydrator to do it’s job, so it requires patience……I am working on that in many areas of my life. I love the way they make the room smell like I am baking banana bread while they are dehydrating. It is like natural potpourri, but better because you get to eat it!

Turn your food dehydrator to 135ยบ degrees. Line six dehydrator trays with parchment or teflon inserts.


6 Ripe Bananas

1 Cup Chopped Fresh Pineapple

1/2 Cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut

2 Tablespoons Honey

2 Teaspoons Fresh Lemon Juice

1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

1/2 Teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt

Add Bananas, Pineapple, Himalayan Pink Salt, Honey, Cinnamon and Lemon Juice to a high speed blender, like this one, and blend until smooth. Add the coconut and blend for 30 seconds. You still want small bits of coconut in it. Pour the batter onto the six trays evenly dispersing.

Now, pick up the tray and tip and swirl in a circular motion to spread the batter evenly. Dehydrate for seven hours, flipping them after six hours. They can go a little longer and be fine too. I have left them for ten hours, they will just be more crunchy instead of chewy. Remove from the dehydrator, cool and roll up with strips of parchment, or you can store them flat. These are a wonderful, yummy, healthy snack! My children’s friends are so envious when they bring them in their lunches! If you like these, stay tuned for more roll up recipes!
