Chocolate Coconut Corn Flake Balls (GF)



This is a variation of these bars.  

These are REALLY good.  Everyone who tried these also liked them and thought they were REALLY good !!!!  The dominant flavors are banana and coconut





Ingredients:
1 cup quick oats
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut  (I used Let's Do...Organic from Edward & Sons )
2 cups Corn Flakes cereal, crushed
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 small to medium sized very ripe bananas, mashed
3/4  cup date syrup  
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp coconut extract


Directions:
Mix everything together in a bowl until thoroughly combined.  



Form into balls and put in freezer to firm up.  Each day these balls tend to get more flavorful.  I actually stored them in the freezer, but took some out to warm up to room temperature before eating them.  They stayed firm in the freezer, but I liked the taste of them at room temperature - they were more like fudge at room temperature.

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.
