Paleo Pecan Delights

Day 20 of the Whole 30 paleo challenge and I want a treat! So. This is loosely based off a recipe my dear friend shared with me. But being a South Carolina girl, I needed my pecan fix and well, this is my creation!!!!

What you need:
1 1/2 cup of pecans 
1/2 or 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup soft pitted dates
2-3 Tbsp coconut oil
3-4 Tbsp raw almond butter
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp vanilla

1. Put pecans & coconut in your food processor with a S shaped blade. Process until it's crumbley. 
2. Add all other ingredients and pulse until you form a dough. If it's too crumbley, add more coconut oil or almond butter. 
3. Shape your balls and store in fridge for a week or freezer for longer storage. 

Note: If you want to impress, roll in cocoa powder or coconut to serve!
