As an added bonus this yummy treat is peanut free, gluten free, sugar free and is only 75 calories each.

3/4 cup dates, pitted
3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
up to 1/4 cup water, divided
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)

Directions

1. Place dates, almonds, cocoa powder, salt vanilla and 1 Tbsp of water in a food processor 
2. Pulse on/off for several rounds, approximately 30 seonds
3. Pulse on/off for longer intervals for about a minute until mixture is mixed enough that it begins to stick together. (If it remains loose and unpacked, added water a little at a time between pulses to moisten.)
