    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    orbs.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place 1/4 cup of the coconut on a plate and set aside.
    2. 2
      Place the rolled oats in a heavy bottomed skillet and toast for a few minutes, stirring constantly.
    3. 3
      When they begin to turn a darker shade of tan at the edges and emit a toasted aroma, transfer the oats to the bowl of a food processor.
    4. 4
      Process on high to pulverize them to a fine meal consistency.
    5. 5
      Add the remained 1/4 cup coconut and the dates and process to finely chop them, then add the almond butter, sesame seeds, and orange peel.
    6. 6
      Add the orange juice and process until things come together to form a homogeneous mass.
    7. 7
      Add a bit more orange juice, if needed, to get the right thickness and well blended consistency.
    8. 8
      Don't add too much juice; you want the mixture to be fairly dry, not moist and mushy.
    9. 9
      Use your hands to form the mixture into balls about 1 1/2-inch in diameter, then roll the balls in the reserved shredded coconut.
    10. 10
      Place on a plate and chill for an hour or so before serving.
    11. 11
      They're also good, though a bit gooey, when eaten at room temperature.

      These are great! I had a party last night and found out at the last minute that several of the guests have sworn off refined sugar, so I whipped these up and boy were they popular! They took no time to throw together, and I had kids and adults alike fighting over the last one :). I didn't have any dates so I used a combination of prunes and raisins. I also don't have a processor (sigh) so I used a coffee grinder for the oatmeal and a hand blender for the rest. I don't recommend it, but it is possible LOL! I cut the recipe to make 18 (shouldn't have!) and I got 21 good-sized snackers. Also, I forgot to split up the coconut and threw it all in with the mix, but that didn't seem to hurt anything. I tried to roll them in more coconut afterward but I had trouble getting it to stick. THanks so much for posting!

      It is great indeed. Roasted fresh coconut as I was not sure what shredded coconut meant but did want to dry out the coconut a bit. Used butter with a few drops of almond essence (don't get almond butter). Needed just a few tsps of the orange juice though. Rolled the balls in dessicated coconut. Very nice. Got around 20 balls but my judgement for size is pretty bad. Thank you. :) Fay
