Instructions

IMG_8041We soaked the dates in hot water to soften them.  They were bought from the bulk section and they were a bit on the hard side. If you use fresh soft dates, ignore this step.
IMG_8048Place almonds, cocoa and shredded coconut into a high-speed blender or food processor.
IMG_8049Process on high until ingredients are a flour-like consistency.
IMG_8050If the mixture is too dry, add some of the water from soaking the dates.
IMG_8055Dump the mixture into a bowl. Take a tablespoon worth of the mixture in place it between your hands, and roll the mixture into a ball.

Roll the ball in a plate with extra shredded coconut.

Repeat until all the mixture is used.

Store in a sealed container for up to 5 days.
