Description

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pitted dates (about 12)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon almond butter
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (divided)
  • 1 Tablespoon mini vegan chocolate chips or dark chocolate pieces (divided)
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400°. Spread all the shredded coconut onto a baking sheet for toasting. Place in oven for 5-10 minutes, until coconut is a light golden brown color. Make sure to stay in the kitchen watch the coconut, as it can easily go from toasted to burnt.
  2. Place dates, almond butter, 1/3 cup of the toasted coconut, 1/2 Tablespoon mini chocolate chips, sea salt and vanilla into a food processor (affiliate link) or mini chopper. Process until the mixture turns into a dough ball.
  3. Work “dough” with clean hands to add in the other 1/2 Tablespoon of chocolate chips. Pinch off small amounts of the dough (about 1.5 teaspoons full) and roll into 12 balls. Roll balls in remaining 1/3 cup of toasted coconut.
  4. Store in fridge.
