Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Banana Oat Balls (DF, GF)

My 6th grade teacher used to make "high fat/non-vegan" cookies called "Boiled Cookies".  I loved them SOOOOOOOOOO much, I asked her for the recipe.  So I tried to create a healthy/vegan version of the no-bake cookies.  These don't taste exactly like them, but they are still DELICIOUS !!!!  I can't eat just one !!!!!  These are "softer" than the "Boiled Cookies".

1/4 cup Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 banana, mashed
1/2 cup peanut butter (no sugar)
3 cups Quaker Quick Oats
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut  (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1/2 cup date syrup 

Mix everything together in a bowl. 

Form into balls and store in fridge.  Each day these balls tend to get more flavorful.

I've started using the  Farberware Cookie Scoop for forming the snack balls, instead of using my hands.  It is not as messy and the balls are a more uniform size.

You were all baptized into Christ, and so you were all clothed with Christ.  This means that you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
