Coconut Date Balls

You should know that I consider my three boys my guinea pigs, and pretty much everything I put in this blog, they have tasted and tested. They give very honest reviews and feedback ... sometimes a bit too honest. This one, though, has been a hit since the first time I made it. Great for the lunchbox, great for a welcome home snack. The coconut and almonds give it staying power in tummies, and the dates just make it all taste good. A good for you snack that takes less than 30 minutes to finish? That's a keeper, I promise. You can sub in other nuts if you'd rather.

Place dates in bowl, and smoosh dates pieces against side of bowl until smooth, adding 1 T of water at a time as needed. Add toasted coconut and almonds and mix well. Shape mixture into 1-inch balls and roll in coconut flakes. Enjoy immediately, or refrigerate/freeze for later.
