Sweet Variety Balls

8-10 Medjool dates
1 cup of oat flour (I take oats and grind them in Vitamix to make oat flour)
1 cup of shredded unsweetened raw coconut
1/2 cup of Juice Plus+ Complete Vanilla shake mix
3 Tbsp of Raw unsweetened Cocoa Powder
2 Tbsp of cinnamon powder

Soak dates in warm water for 2-3 hours until they are soft. Do not discard water from the dates. Mix all the ingredients in Vitamix (blender) and add 1/3 cup of water from the dates. Remove the mixture from the blender and put it in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Take the mixture our of the freezer, oil your hands with coconut oil and mold the mixture into a spoon sized balls. You can dip the balls in shredded coconut flakes, crushed nuts, chia or hemp seeds, raw cocoa powder, sesame seeds or cinnamon powder.

You can keep the sweet balls in the fridge or at the room temperature if you eat them in 1-2 days.
