Chewy Candy Ball Delights

I saw this recipe in my Azure Standard Sales Flyer.

{And I love Azure Standard by the way. Healthy food gets delivered once a month, as long as I remember to order :). Can't beat that!}

1 cup pitted dates
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup carob powder
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 cup walnuts

Place dates in Vita Mix or food processor. Blend until you have a nice date paste. Add in the remaining ingredients gently beat until well combined. With your hands, press firmly into little balls and roll balls in shredded coconut. (Or in my case, press in a pan because you don't feel like rolling balls) Place in the refrigerator until serving.

This was pretty tasty, even though I didn't mix it enough!
