How to make a healthy No Bake Almond Rocca ish treat!

I have found YouTube to be a wonderful source of information on many subjects, one of them healthy cooking. A long time ago, I would go to the library and read all the books I could find on the subject, scour tag sales and flea markets for books and magazines.  That was 1982 and that was very well spent time!  Now it is 2017 and many of us young people have grown up and found our own way of learning, sharing and enjoying like minded company: blogs and Youtube have become a great source for this generation to learn.  I still love my books and look for new ones all the time, - Who knows how long the internet will last and how long it will be affordable?  I'll be enjoying it while I can and still have a faithful backup - books!

Today I was looking for a healthy and yummy treat to make for Steve and I.  I've been promising to come up with something Her would really like.  We Score!!  Thank you, Stacy,  from 'OFF GRID with DOUG and STACY'.


Here are my results!!



I wanted to share this with you, this is a real winner!  I also added a couple of things you may or may not want to.

here is the video from Stacy:








A few things I did differently. I  chopped my almonds and my chips in my Vitamix, not too fine but I only had whole almonds ( soaked and dehydrated before storing) and the large dark chocolate chips.
I also used peanut butter and I added Molasses.  

I mixed everything using a wooden spoon and set it aside for about 40 minutes


I made the little balls and then I rolled them in chopped unsweetened coconut




Oh My, they are good!!!
I only ate one - just to make sure it was safe!  They are very rich and satisfying - one is enough!
can't wait till Steve gets home from work!
 Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
