- Place mixture in a bowl, pour in coconut oil and sweetener, and mix with a wooden spoon or by hand.
- Form one inch balls by rolling dough in the palms of your hands (about a tablespoon), and place on a cookie sheet. Note: if the dough does not hold together add more coconut oil a little at a time and mix until it sticks together.
