2 cup whole Almonds, raw (ground in blender)
1/2 cup Cocoa powder, unsweetened
1 cup Coconut, shredded, unsweetened (toasted or plain)
25 date(s) Dates (softened in water, then blended, or 2/3 cup agave)
1 tbsp Coconut oil
1/4 cup hulled Sunflower seeds (slightly ground, or hemp, flax or pumpkin)


Shake about 1 cup of shredded coconut on plate or if you like, dry roast the shredded coconut in a frying on the stovetop by placing the coconut in the pan on med-high heat and warm through until it turns light golden brown. Be sure to watch becasue it does not take long

Process the nuts in a blender or food processor until they are ground into a fine crumb like texture. You can also buy already ground almond/pecan nuts at bulk barn, but it is really very easy/quick to do in blender/food processor

Mix well all ingredients in large bowl with mixer or by hand

Roll into small balls and roll balls in coconut.

If freezing, place in 1 layer at a time, then separate with wax paper for next layer in sealed container.
