Happy Sweets

I'm definitely realizing that refined sugar does my fibro no good. I had good ol' ice cream the other night and woke up with ham hock hands. Sigh.
I'm always so happy to find healthier sweets that satiates everyone's tooth, and I can wake up a little less puffballed.

Although it's just about spring, these little "Snowballs" (from Josh Axe's "Real Food") are a nice fix. Let me know what you think.


1 cup almond butter
1/2 cup carob powder (I used organic cocoa powder)
2 tbsp raw honey
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
Pinch of sea salt
1/2 cup shredded coconut

Mix all but coconut together. Roll into balls (tbsp size) and coat in coconut. I found these do nicely in the freezer, but can also just be popped in the fridge.



  1. How do these taste without coconut? They sound delish until you get to the coconut....

  2. That's Anne by the way - I am TRYING to figure out the comments section where I'm not just "unknown" : P

  3. Looky there! I did it! Now, about that coconut....

    1. Hiya! It would taste fine without the coconut, but will be a bit sticky. I'd suggest rolling them in crushed peanuts or almonds maybe.
