1 1/4cup coconut flakes, shredded, unsweetened
4 tablespoons cocoa powder, unsweetened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips*
1 banana, mashed
1/2 teaspoon chocolate liquid stevia
9 dates, pitted, chopped
Blend one cup of the coconut flakes with the banana and cocoa in a food processor.
A small amount at a time add the chopped dates to the food processor.
Once thoroughly combined until smooth mix in the stevia, vanilla extract and salt.
Place mixture into a bowl and stir in the chocolate chips.
Place the 1/4 cup of coconut flakes onto a plate.
Make 14 small chocolate balls from the mixture then roll them into the coconut flakes. Refrigeration is not necessary, but if you are not eating them right away I would keep them in the fridge to stay firm until you are ready to eat.
