Peanut Butter Coconut Energy Balls

I make a lot of snacks but these Peanut Butter Coconut Energy Balls are my all-time favorite. The taste and texture is spot on and I always have all of the ingredients on hand to whip up a batch for the week. It’s the perfect little bite-size snack. They’re also vegan and kid-approved!
