Peanut Butter Balls

I haven't tried these yet, but Stephanie said they are so good!

1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup chopped pitted dates
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup pure maple syrup (Stephanie substituted honey)
1/4-1/2 cup Peanut butter or Almond Butter(depends on how much PB flavor you want, add more to taste)
1/2 cup finely shredded coconut(plus more for rolling)
3/4 cup oats
2-3 TB Carob Chips(or chocolate chips)
1 tsp. Vanilla

Using a food processor or high speed blender, add walnut and process until chunky crumbs. Then add dates, and process until chunky crumbs again. Next add almonds and carob chips, and process again. You don’t want it to be fine crumbs, you want it a little chunky. Not HUGE chunks though. Add maple syrup, PB or AB, and vanilla, and process until combined. Next add coconut and oats, and process until chunky and combined.

Roll into balls. Mixture will be sticky. You can roll them out plain,
Or you can be cool and roll them in coconut. Then store in the fridge or freezer when done.

They taste JUST peanut butter cookie dough, minus the un-healthy ingredients!
