    The chocolate coconut almond balls are excellent! I was looking for a wheat free healthy pick me up snack for the afternoon. This is perfect plus it satisfies my chocolate craving. I used double Dutch dark chocolate, soo decadent! Thank you for such a great snack recipe!

    I’m not a big fan of the dates. Is there a replacement for the dates?

      Hi Ericka, great question! Any chopped dried fruit will work in place of the dates.
