This recipe is by Andrea Hood.
|We 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.|
|Place almonds, cocoa and shredded coconut into a high-speed blender or food processor.|
|Process on high until ingredients are a flour-like consistency.|
|If the mixture is too dry, add some of the water from soaking the dates.|
|Dump 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.
