Tastes Like Hostess Crumb Donuts Cookies

1 cup raw almonds
1 cup very soft, pitted dates
1/2 cup finely shredded banana squash
1/2 cup shredded coconut
More shredded coconut for rolling
Splash olive oil
1-2 tbs nutmeg
Sea salt


Put almonds in food processor and process to very fine pieces. Add dates, a little at a time. Add splash of olive oil, a little salt and a little vanilla. The mixture will look like very coarse meal at first, and then all of a sudden it will come together in one big ball.

Take the big ball out of the food processor and, using your hands, mix in the shredded squash, the nutmeg and the shredded coconut until it is all mixed in. Taste and add more coconut or nutmeg if desired.

Roll the mixture into small balls, and roll in shredded coconut to cover. Place on a plate in a single layer and chill in the freezer until firm. After they are firm, you can put them in a container; they will keep for a very long time in the freezer.
