Sweetened with Stevia: Mazzou's Carob Coconut balls Paleo, Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free

Here is a healthy alternative to truffles! 
Made with carob, coconut oil and stevia there is nothing, absolutely nothing bad about these little morsels! I can't remember exactly how much this makes ;P but it's a nice amount for one person for a couple days. :) I'll update this recipe later when I know for sure how much it makes.

1/3 cup coconut oil (soft, not liquid) or a combination of softened butter and coconut oil
1/4 cup fine unsweetened coconut (you can use whatever size you have; if you only have larger shreds of coconut grind them up somewhat in a coffee or spice grinder or do half and half ground and whole)
1/4 tsp. vanilla
6 tsp. carob powder

That's it! Just mix it all together and using your fingers, form into tiny  balls! (about 1-inch in diameter)
Refrigerate or freeze until hard. These make fun snacks right out of the freezer but do not travel too well in any season other than winter! ;P 
I love adding these to my healthy muffin batter for a fun ''chocolatey'' surprise inside.
