they store well in a jar in the fridge

Blend everything except dates for 1 minute. Make sure you have a floury consistency (add extra oats if consistency is too oily –> will depend on the seeds & nuts you use) 

Then bled in the dates (another minute)

taste, add 2 tbsp of coconut sugar or other sugar if you have a sweet tooth!

Use your hands to roll the paste into little balls and at the end roll them into the coconut shaving.

Place in fridge for them to firm up and store them there.
If you want to take them as a snack place them in freezer so you can enjoy them while they are unthawed.
