Chocolate Crisp Cranberry Almond Snack Balls (GF)

These have a good combination of flavors.  The sweetness of the cranberries and chocolate chips make it a nice dessert after dinner !!!!

2 cups dates  (I use medjool dates)
1/2 to 3/4 cup water (depending on how dry the dates are)
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup almonds, coarsely chopped
3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
1 cup dried cranberries 

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

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

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
