Vegan Coconut Cake Balls

Cute, fluffy, and super tasty- these are perfect if you're bored with cake and want to try something new!
These have a dash of cinnamon and coconut shreds throughout and toasted coconut on top. The frosting is a coconut-based vegan frosting. Here are some pictures!

By the way, I'm going to stop being greedy and actually start sharing the recipe with you. Try it out and give me a holla back.

1/2 c instant oats 
1/4 c dried cranberries

Butter up the bundt pan. Add a 1/4 of filling, then add 1/3 of cake mixture. Layer another 1/4 filling then add 1/3 cake mixture, and so on. Finishing with filling on top. 
Pop in the oven for about 40 to 50 min at 375 degrees. Check often. Stab toothpick in cake, if it comes out clean, you’re good to go. Let it cool 10 min before taking it out of bundt pan. Cut up and eat up. It’s good for you.
