Date-Almond snack balls

This is dedicated to my dear husband who would not eat a cracker/cookie or anything processed for a snack. I needed to come up with a healthy and wholesome snack which can be made in a jiffy..!!

Ingredients:
Medjool dates - 5-6
Almonds - 3/4 cup
Dried coconut - 1/4 cup
Sesame Seeds (Optional) - 2 Tbsn

Method:
Start pulsing almonds and a dry coconut in a blender or food prep.
In about 1-2 minutes you should have a coarse ground almond coconut mixture.
Add pitted dates and continue pulsing for a minute or so.
If you are adding sesame, now is the time. Just give a turn or two to mix it in.
Transfer the contents to a bowl and make walnut sized balls.
This is a no cooking involved snack, using only wholesome ingredients, rich in nutrients and high in energy

Note: Be creative, substitute dates with other dry fruits like raisins, apricots etc.
also, substitute almonds with any nuts of your choice.
