  1. Pour almonds into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until nuts turn into a coarse meal. 

  2. Pour in cocoa powder, honey, and coconut oil. Continue pulsing until a very thick mixture forms. You may have to scrape down the sides a few times. Also, feel free to add in splashes of water or more honey to get the mixture moving in the bowl, but be careful not to add too much. 

  3. Once you have a thick paste, scoop into small balls using a cookie scoop. Roll in shredded coconut or chopped almonds. Store in an air tight container until ready to eat.
