I found this recipe from Ruth Naylor in her cookbook Gleefully Gluten-Free! Healthy Desserts & Snacks. One of my favorites and for you health nuts it is an extremely healthy and satisfying treat. Bonus: it only takes about ten minutes to make! I had my oldest son help me mix it all together and I rolled it into balls and let him roll it in the coconut and put it on the paper plate! Even my kids love this treat.
