Let’s do this!
In a food processor, process the almonds until they become a fine crumb. Add the ginger and allspice, and process again briefly.
Add the tahini, dates and coconut nectar, and process until the mixture becomes sticky. If it’s not coming together, add 1 tsp of water.
Taking 1 tbsp of mixture at at time, roll into balls and coat with desiccated coconut.
