Coconut and Lime Bites

I made these right before going to Mr. Custom Taste's father's house for a weekend vacation and tons of grilling. Before we left I was trying to use up any fresh produce that might not last much longer. We had recently bought some coconut oil and had just a few limes left. So my "ah-ha!" moment ended me wanting to make a lime and coconut poke cake or cupcakes then finally mini-cupcakes. Well they took on a whole mind of their own. Let me just say apparently I am great making stuff that should have cheese it in cheeseless. My sister-in-law was the first to say they reminded her of a key-lime cheesecake. After that was said, everyone else started agreeing, even I didn't notice it. With summer winding down, I suggest taking this to the next BBQ. Sweet enough to please any sweet tooth and light enough to keep everyone happy.
