Active Time
20 minutes
Total Time
50 minutes (includes chilling)


    • 30 dried unsweetened Turkish figs (you can easily switch out the figs for dates for a variation)
    • 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut, divided
    • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • Sea salt or pink Himalayan sea salt to taste


    1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
    2. In a food processor or blender, place the figs, 1 1/2 cups coconut, coconut oil, cinnamon, and salt and blend until a smooth paste forms. It will have the consistency of brown sugar.
    3. Form the dough into 1-inch balls, about 1 tablespoon of batter for each, and then roll the balls in the remaining shredded coconut.
    4. Refrigerate for 30 minutes and serve.
