Ingredients

1 cup raw almonds

1/3 cup dried blueberries

1/3 cup dried tart cherries

1/2 cup pitted dates

2 tablespoons flaxseed meal

1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

Directions

  1. Reconstitute any of the fruit that is not moist and tender by placing it in a bowl and covering it with warm water. Depending on how dry it is, this could take up to 15 minutes. Drain off the excess water and pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Put the almonds in a food processor and process until small pieces form, but before it becomes a paste. Pulse as needed. Add the blueberries, cherries, dates, and flaxseed meal. Pulse until the mixture pulls away from the sides, about 1 minute. If it doesn't, add 1 tablespoon water and process until it does, adding another tablespoon of water if needed. Sprinkle a plate with the coconut and using a 1-tablespoon scoop, portion the mixture into balls, about 24, and drop onto the coconut. Roll in the coconut. Store in an airtight container with any excess coconut in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
