Paleo Balls

I made these sweet treats for a nice night in with some friends.

What you'll need:

1/2 c pitted dates
2 tbsp natural applesauce
1 egg white
1 teasp cocoa powder
1 c unsweetened coconut, divided in halves
1/4 c walnuts
1/2 c almond meal

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all ingredients and place into your food processor, except for 1/2 c of Coconut and the Almond meal. Pulse the processor until the mixture is nice and smooth. You will have to scrape the sides of the processor a couple of times to make sure the mixture is blended enough.
Once you have a nice, smooth mixture, place it into a larger bowl and fold in the remaining coconut and the almond meal. On a greased cookie sheet, spoon up some small balls and place them in rows. Bake for 10 minutes.

** You may want to add your own ingredients, or more/less or the ingredients I listed. I have been loving coconut shavings lately, so I went a little heavy on the coconut***

Enjoy, try not to eat all of them in one sitting!
