Coconut Almond Snack Balls (DF, GF)

I just wanted to keep eating these !!  My co-workers loved them also and could have eaten more !!!

2 cups dates  (I use medjool dates)
1/3 cup water 
2 cups Unsweetened Shredded Coconut  (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 cup almonds, coarsely chopped

Soak the dates in the water for about 15 minutes to soften.

Blend the dates (with water) and coconut in a blender or food processor and blend until well combined.  Stir in the almonds.

Form into balls and store in fridge.  Each day these balls tend to get more flavorful.  I like these better after they have been in the fridge overnight.

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

My favorite food processor is the KitchenAid  7-Cup Food Processor

For blenders, I use both the  Vitamix Blender and Ninja Master Prep Professional Blender

Enter his gates with thanksgiving;  go into his courts with praise.  Give thanks to him and praise his name.
