How to Make Low Carb Cauliflower Coconut Balls Snack
Steam the Cauliflower: Cut half a head of cauliflower into florets and steam them until they’re tender. You can use a steamer basket over boiling water for about 5-7 minutes.
Mash the Cauliflower: Once the cauliflower is steamed and cool enough to handle, use a fork or a food processor to mash it into a smooth puree.
Mix the Ingredients: In a large bowl, combine your cauliflower puree with 2 tablespoons of peanut butter and 2 tablespoons of erythritol (a keto-friendly sweetener). Mix these well until they’re completely integrated.
Add the Coconut: Pour 2 cups of unsweetened shredded coconut into the bowl with your cauliflower mixture. Stir everything together with a spatula until it’s well combined and sticks together.
Shape Your Balls: Take a small amount of the mixture and roll it between your palms to form a ball. If the mix is too sticky, you can wet your hands a little to prevent sticking.
Coat with Coconut: Spread some additional shredded coconut onto a plate. Roll each ball in the coconut until it’s nicely coated.
Chill: Place your cauliflower coconut balls onto a tray and refrigerate them. They’re best served cold and can be stored in the fridge for up to a week.
