Those date/coconut balls were amazing! - jomohair

This is a great snack for a little pick me up during the day. They are high in fiber and protein. For those of you that are carb counting, each ball has about 5 grams of carbs in them.

Pro Tip: To reduce the sugar amount, choose plain greek yogurt instead of vanilla greek yogurt.   

I could not find hemp seeds nor almond meal at my store, so I used 1/4 cup of grounded flax seeds and 1/2 cup of hazelnut meal instead.
