3 cups medjool dates, pitted and diced

1 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut, medium shreds or chips

4 tbsp coconut creme/butter, melted

2 tbsp virgin coconut oil, softened

1 1/2 cups raw almonds

1/3 cup vanilla egg white protein or protein of choice

(optional but adds vanilla flavoring) 



Once the dates have soaked for a couple hours, add them to a food processor along with the coconut creme/butter and coconut oil (add protein at this time)

Process until mixture is well combined and creme and oil are fully melted

Add in the coconut and blend until consistency is doughy and moldable

Add the almonds at this time and blend until almonds are well incorporated

Pack the dough into balls, you may need to press firmly

I prefer to store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

The coconut creme and oil will harden when cooled and allow for a harder ball
