You can make your own sugar free powdered sugar using this recipe or you can buy sugar free powdered sugar already made online.
This recipe calls for a fat that is needed to hold everything together.
You could use butter for this. However, I have a recipe for sugar free homemade peanut butter you can use instead of butter or shortening.
You can find other great butter alternatives online.

As mentioned, this recipe gets even better when you add extra ingredients to the mix.

  • Add chopped nuts for a great crunch!
  • Substitute an extract such as rum extract or mint extract for your vanilla extract.
  • You can give your coconut balls a healthy twist by rolling them in granola, oats, or even dried fruit. Please note that doing so can give these carbohydrates and sugar.
