Super Cacao Raw Balls

1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp sweetener (agave, honey, raw sugar)
1/2 cup pecans
3/4 cup sunflower seeds
2 Tbsp flaxseed meal
2 scoops (approx 2 Tbsp) Perfect Food RAW Real Cacao Powder
1/4 cup coconut flakes
2 Tbsp coconut butter
1/4 cup coconut flakes, to coat

Method:

1) Soak raisins in 1/4 cup water with 2 Tbsp sugar (or honey, agave, etc).

2) Put pecans, sunflower seeds, flaxseed, coconut flakes, coconut butter and Perfect Food RAW Cacao Powder in food processor and pulse until broken up. Pieces should be small, but not powder. You may need to push the corners down into the center a couple times.

3) Add the soaked raisins to the processor and pulse to cut the raisins in the mix. Keep pressing the blended pulp down and pulse it until there are no more whole raisins. This should be a sticky dough.

4) Divide the dough into quarters using a utensil. Each quarter makes 8 balls. It may be easier to roll these balls with a little oil on your hands.

5) Roll the balls in shredded coconut flakes.

6) Store in freezer.

Makes 32 Super Cacao Raw Balls.
