Coconut Ball

2 cups dried unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup mint leaves
1/2 cup almonds
1/4 cup maple syrup (not raw but used in many raw food recipes)
1/4 cup agave
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

Coconut Ball

      Place mint leaves and almonds in food processor. (I used pre-soaked, dehydrated almonds). Process until ground fine.

   3.
      Mix together coconut, almond mint mixture and agave mixture.
   4.
      Take a tablespoon and dip into hot water, pack with mixture and then turn out onto mesh dehydrator sheet.
   5.
      Dehydrate for 6+ hours or until desired dryness is achieved. You can start the dehydration at 140 for the first hour, then reduce to 115. Cool.

Cacao Coating

      Whisk all ingredients together.
   2.
      Dip macaroons into cacao mixture and chill. You can let the cacao mixture cool a little before dipping for a thicker coating.
