Coconut & Pistachio Bites

Coconut & Pistachio Bites

Years ago I often made these coconut balls using shredded coconut and a tin of condensed milk. You couldn’t get simpler than that when it came to ingredients. Just mix together and roll into bite size balls. It was a yummy little treat to put together when you had guests coming around or to take with you when visiting friends or family. Recently I remembered these and thought I had not made them in a while. Of course this time I thought I’d up the ante and ‘Lebanese-ify’ them!


I know you’ll love these! My family did!


Remember, they make the perfect little edible treats too! So go on, be creative and package them up for your own family and friends!

RECIPE is below & here on my You Tube channel…

What you’ll need:

1 pack arrowroot/milk coffee biscuit

395g tin sweetened condensed milk

2 cups shredded coconut

3/4 cup shredded coconut (extra)

1/4 cup crushed pistachio

1 teaspoons Rosewater

1 teaspoon Orange Blossom


  1. Using a food processor, whiz up biscuits to a fine crumb.
  2. Place biscuit crumb with all remaining dry ingredients, orange blossom & rosewater (excluding extra coconut). Stir together.
  3. Add condensed milk, ensuring you mix through well so it coats all dry ingredients.
  4. Dab the palm of your hands with water. Take one tablespoon of the mixture. Bring together to create a dough like consistency and then roll into a ball. (Note: Having wet hands makes this process a lot easier!)
  5. As the ball is still moist, roll through to coat with the extra shredded coconut. Chill in refrigerator until needed.

(Makes approximately 38 – 40 balls if using a tablespoon measure.)
