  3. Make equal sized balls and keep it in the fridge for 10 minutes.

The basic ingredients are just almonds, dates, and coconut oil. I also add some cocoa powder to give it a twist of taste and peanut butter which gives it a buttery flavour. Coating the balls in the grated coconut gives it a finishing touch.
