1 ½ cups pitted dates
½ cup coconut butter
1 Tablespoons of coconut oil
Shredded coconut, fine (optional)
In a food processor, process the dates for a minute or so into a paste
Add the coconut butter. Pulse a few times to crumble the coconut butter and mix it throughout.
Melt the coconut oil in a small pan, don’t overheat. It will melt easily. Turn on the food processor and pour the melted oil through the top allowing the dates and butter to blend into a smooth paste.
To roll the balls, pick up a small handful of paste and press it into your hand and roll it into a little ball, less than 1 inch in diameter. Place them in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator (in the summer) or a cool spot.
