*REQUIRES FOOD PROCESSOR - I use this Cuisinart*
Ingredients (scroll down to buy ingredients):
1/2 cup pitted prunes
1/4 cup pitted dates
3 TBS almond butter (I just used almonds which I soaked for 1 hour beforehand)
1 TBS maple syrup (tastes just fine without this)
3 TBS unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup finely grated unsweetened coconut
Consider adding oats next time
In a food processor, drop the prunes and dates through the feed hole one by one. Scrape the processor bowl and run until the prunes and dates are smooth.
Add remaining ingredients except for the coconut. Run until smooth and scrape the processor bowl with a spatula as needed.
Roll the mixture into 12 one-inch balls and roll in coconut to coat. Refrigerate for at least 1/2 hour.
Makes 12 pieces

TRICKS & TIPS:
This was so easy to make using my Cuisinart. I have both an 11-cup and the 2-cup mini prep. It'll be easier to use the larger one, since it doesn't require any batches and can be done all at once.
