  4. Hey Girls!

  6. Hey i am so in love with your recipes they are all soo yum!! can these be frozen? and how long can they be kept in the fridge for?
    thank you 🙂

  7. Hi Caitlin! Thanks for the feedback – we love them too! We haven’t frozen them before but we are sure that would be fine 🙂 they should last in an airtight container for around 5 days. Enjoy! e & c

  8. Hi guys! What do you think would be any appropriate substitutes for coconut flour?? I just moved states and haven’t found any down here yet! But I really want to make these 🙁 Thanks 🙂

  9. Hi Ana! Try using almond meal/flour instead 🙂 You might need a little more, as coconut flour dries out the mix a little! e & c

  18. These look amazing as do many of your foods. Do you have any ideas for making these work without eggs? So many of your look great except I cannot eat eggs, and I am wondering if you have alternates.

    Hi Kristin… we have not tried this before with this recipe but you could replace with chia ‘egg’ which is 1 TBS chia seeds and 3 TBS water (equals 1 egg)

  20. Just made these as a morning tea snack to spruce up my morning ! all i can say is i hope they make it to monday !!! 🙂 😉

  23. For those of us in the United States, that would be a 400 degree oven? The conversion table said 392 degrees, but that’s not happening. And a rasher would be a slice of bacon? These look so tasty, don’t want to burn them nor undercook them.

    Thanks – Merry Christmas!

    Hehe oh it’s so tricky with the conversions! We’d suggest going just below 400°F can you do 390°F? And yes a rasher is like a slice of bacon. Let us know how you go! These are one of our fav snacks! Merry Christmas Sharon! xox

  25. These are great! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
    I see dill in the balls, but not in the ingredients list. Dill is always a good kick for zucchini.

  27. Not exactly paleo, but I whacked in some cheese and a homemade ranch dressing on the side with extra dill goodness. Super delish!
