Servings: 15-20
Preparation Time: 10 minutes

or for variations:

In food processor, use chopping blade to blend coconut, dates, coconut oil and spices, until dates are finely chopped in mixture.

If using nuts you can add these now to the food processor and may not need to add any fruit spread to bind balls.

If you are not using nuts put the mixture or part (if you want to make different flavors) of the mixture in a bowl. Mix in any extra ingredients you like at this point.

Add fruit spread (if needed) and mix. The mixture should be slightly sticky when you touch it but not wet. (Once you refrigerate the balls they are not sticky to touch.)

Form the mixture into balls about the size of a walnut and put on a plate, refrigerate and enjoy.

Do the coconut treat balls really need to be refrigerated? O is that just to set them? These sound yummy, and I was thinking about shipping like Christmas presents.

These were great, even without the fruit spread. We used walnuts, unsweetened dates & figs. These are our new "candy"!

I refrigerate them to set them, but since the fruit spread is something that needs to be refrigerated I keep them there. I think if you just use nuts and no fruit spread they would not need to be refrigerated.
