In a food processor, grind up almonds. Add theย rest of ingredients and blend for 1-2 minutes until doughy. Roll dough into small balls and roll in coconut to coat, put balls in fridge (or freezer) to set about 1 hour.ย (I put a little lemon juice on my hands to roll because it was a little sticky — and if it’s too wet, put in refrigerator for an hour or so before rolling).

Makes about 20 balls

Only 79 Calories per ball
