PREPARATION
1.
Slice each date in half and pull out the seeds.
2.
Put dates, peanut butter and orange juice in food processor and pulse until it has become a thick, sticky paste.
3.
Wet fingers and scoop roughly one tablespoon of paste out of food processor.
4.
Form it into a little ball and roll in a plate of dried, shredded coconut.
5.
Refrigerate to firm them up and serve. Enjoy!
NOTES, TIPS, TRICKS, HINTS, ETC:
I recommend making a couple balls first and then rolling them around in coconut. Otherwise there will be a whole lot of hand-washing going on in between each ball. This way is much faster.
