Cocoa-Nut Almond Energy Balls

I am a busy person and I always seem to be hungry.  Eating at odd times or stretching the times in between meals.  These are the perfect snack!  They taste yummy and are filling.

These are super easy to make.  All you really do is toss all the ingredients in a food processor and watch it go.  Let me know if you try it.  I think this is going to become a regular recipe for me.
