Recipe: Chocolate Coconut Balls

With school starting in the next couple of days I've been really thinking about snacks that I can make for our little guy for school.  Oftentimes at home we'll give snacks that contain nuts.  These chocolate coconut balls are one of our favorite snacks and are incredibly easy to make.

You'll need:
1 cup sunflower seeds (almonds if you're not making a nut free version)
1.5 cups dates
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
5 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla

Put everything into a food processor.

Run the food processor until the mix resembles coarse, wet sand.

You can either shape into balls at this point or put the mixture into the fridge for an hour until it's easier to handle and them form into balls.  These will keep for about a week in the fridge.  They won't last that long.  I promise.
