These no-bake balls are real easy to whip up in one bowl or you can use a food processor to make things even easier.

Refrigerate or freeze these these soft, creamy & raw dough balls–and enjoy when you’re craving an eggnog flavoured treat!

Eggnog Dough Balls
These Eggnog Dough Balls are soft, creamy and the perfect healthy treat for the holiday season! These delicious bites are free of dairy, gluten, grains + raw, plant-based & paleo!
- 1 3/4 cups almond flour
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 2 tbsp coconut palm sugar
- 3/4 tsp ceylon cinnamon
- 3/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- pinch sea salt
- 1/4 cup raw coconut oil, melted & cooled
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup dairy free eggnog, I used So Delicious Coconut Holiday Nog
- 1 tbsp coconut palm sugar, for coating
Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
Pour coconut oil and maple syrup into the dry mixture and mix well.
Add the eggnog until a thick batter is formed. If the batter is too runny, add a teaspoon more coconut flour at a time until batter thickens.
Place batter in freezer for roughly 15-minutes to firm up. This will make the batter less sticky so you can form balls easily.
Scoop a teaspoon of dough and form into a small ball. You can roll the balls in the extra coconut palm sugar to coat then place in large shallow tupperware, dish or tray.
Store balls in the fridge for up to 2-weeks.
Steps 1-3 can be done using a food processor, if you have one.
