So here goes: all measurements are guesses but what you are looking for in the end is a sticky, thick cookie dough like consistency and of course, great flavor. You want it to hold together when squeezed so that you can roll it into balls. Store in refrigerator.
1cup raw almonds (I toasted in the oven for deeper flavor)
1cup dried, pitted dates (check to make sure pits are out)
3/4 cup almond butter
3/4 cup coconut butter
1cup dried coconut (toasted)
3/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/8 cup agave nectar
pinch of salt
First pulse the almonds alone in food processor until fine sand-like grain then add dates and pulse until same. Then add rest of ingredients and let 'er rip! it should come together in about 45 seconds. Taste and add more agave or honey if not sweet enough. Then hide from your kidlets!
