Tips and Tricks
You may experience that the dough comes out a bit loose. It is because of the juicy ingredients. You can add some more coconut at this point, or coat them with some extra coconut & seeds. These power bites should not be compact and dry.
 
For extra flavour, you may want to (dry) roast the coconut and seeds in a skillet (you can use some oil if you want!). Once roasted, set them aside to cool before using.
