1 3/4 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
2 1/2 teaspoons melted coconut oil
2 1/2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
4 Tbsp dried cranberries
1. Place 1 cup of shredded coconut in a food processor along with the coconut oil. Process on high speed, scraping down the sides periodically, until it reaches a paste-like consistency. (It does not have to be completely smooth like butter; some coconut texture is good.)
2.Add the honey, coconut milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and and salt and process until well combined. Add 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons of shredded coconut and pulse until just combined. Then add 4 tbsp dried cranberries and pulse until combined.
3.Shape the mixture into 12 (1-inch) balls and coat with the remaining shredded coconut. Refrigerate for at least an hour and up to 5 days. Bring to room temperature before eating.
