  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 12-cup mini muffin pan with nonstick spray, or line the pan with paper muffin cups. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine grated coconut, condensed milk, honey, egg yolk, vanilla extract, and lime zest.
  3. Divide coconut mixture among the 12 mini muffin cups — place about 2 tablespoons of the mixture for each coconut bite.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes until lightly golden brown. Remove from the oven and let it cool for 1 minute. Remove each coconut bite from the mold and serve.
