- In a food processor, chop almonds into a flour.
- Blend in Medjool dates until incorporated.
- Combine all ingredients with date-almond flour in a large bowl. (If coconut oil is solid, melt it first!) Dough will be very stiff so use a strong wooden spoon or spatula.
- Roll dough into Tablespoon-sized balls with your hands then roll in bowl of raw cacao powder to coat, dunk one side in the pink salt and place on papered cookie sheet.
- Store in fridge for at least an hour before serving or packaging. Keeps for 3 days.
